A stunningly refurbished timber sloop.

Cardinal Puff is a classic in every sense of the word. She was lovingly restored by a previous owner with the help of Derwent Marine in Hobart Tasmania. Not many parts of the boat were not either replaced or refurbished. A new Nanni engine along with a new mast, rigging and associated electrics make this 50 year old boat as good as new. Down below is no different with a new stove, upholstery, electric head and electronics. Designed by Ron Swanson and Wally Ward and built by the legendary shipwright Graeme Williams. This amazing yacht is regarded as a classic of its time and despite her length an incredibly sea-worthy vessel. With over $100,000.00 of recent expenditure Cardinal Puff is set to go for another 50 years. Make an offer on this classic boat, keen vendor.
