The Yachts

Euphoria II

Purchased in Mexico in 2009, this classic cruising yacht was sailed across the Pacific to her new home in Brisbane and has since competed in several Brisbane to Gladstone Races, a club championship at MBBC, won the 2014 Kingfisher Night Series, won the 2015 MBBC Fairway Challenge and is a previous PHS winner and Short Handed winner in the Brisbane to Noumea Race. Lots of go-fast gear, her owner says tongue in cheek, including a wind generator, Bimini, windvane steering, gas BBQ and headsail furler. If the going gets tough, the crew will be comfortable.
