About Me

Oryx is for sale!

As I mentioned in my previous post, Oryx is back in New Zealand.  Pete tells me that, once again, he wants to try out another boat.  He says he has 'one last boat to build', but at the moment, he'd rather buy something already out there - preferably with junk rig to save the effort of conversion, but first he has to sell Oryx.




For a  33ft boat, she has heaps of accommodation: two double cabins, one single, a good galley and heads and a saloon and chart table on the bridge deck.  For £45,000, you get a lot of boat for your money.  Pete built her in the UK, sailed the Atlantic coast of South America and over to South Africa.  From there he sailed across the Indian Ocean to Oz and then came to NZ.  This winter he has been exploring French Polynesia and Tonga.  She sounds to be a pretty fast boat.

If you want to see photos of the interior and read up on her specs, you can find it all here.  If you want to contact Pete, you can easily do so if you are a member of the Junk Rig Association: his details are in the Membership Directory - or leave a comment on this blog with your email address (it won't be published until I've moderated it) and I'll forward it to him.

I hope Oryx can soon find a new owner who will appreciate this special boat!
