Euphoria II has only contested one Sydney Hobart, in 2017, when she finished 61st overall.  Purchased by Marc Stuart in Mexico in 2009, this classic cruising yacht was sailed across the Pacific to her new home in Brisbane where she competed in several Brisbane to Gladstone races, and major Moreton Bay Boat Club events.  She is also 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 (perfect for two-handed sailing) and headsail furler.  If you want to do it in style and comfort, this is the boat.
