Advertiser's comments

Ben Lexcen was an Australian yachtsman and marine architect. He is famous for the winged keel design applied to Australia II which, in 1983, became the first non-American yacht to win the prestigious America's Cup in 132 years.

From his board comes 'Pacemaker', a fast cruising yacht of note. This yacht is a joy to sail, already seatrialled by YBC, she has an incredibly balanced and responsive helm.

The owner (an offshore engineer) has optimized this yacht for fast, safe, and comfortable single handed sailing. Sail handling is by means of a powerful 3 speed electric Barton winch, 2008. All sails can be trimmed from the helm. She has a spacious cockpit with a
Trench style companionway and lots of well organized storage for cruising whilst living aboard.

The exterior was completely taken back to the hull and repainted in Awlgrip in 2011, a 5 month job by 'Solidair' in Phuket Boat Lagoon. At the time a new pulpit, stern tube, flush through hulls etc. were fitted. A marine AC was installed in the owners cabin with soft start
which allows it to be run from a Honda EU2000 Generator (not included).

Everything major was checked, including NDT testing of the Rod rigging cold head ends. All necessary repairs were undertaken including re-glassing the new stern tube and the tip of the rudder. Chainplates were removed, checked and re bedded. New tables were fabricated along with AC housing, engine cover etc..

The interior was repainted in 2013 with more joinery work done at Zieks yard in Carmen Philippines

The engine mounts and flexible drive have been recently replaced resulting in smooth, quiet motoring.
