The hull was fully stripped and painted to a super yacht finish 9 years ago. At the same time a Hatch weaver was installed. The sails are about 3/4 through their life. Spinnaker is in better condition. Winches (3) are old Masport models that could do with servicing. There are plenty of cups, plates, cutlery. Some spare parts. Some old life jackets and assorted ropes. The outboard has always been flushed with fresh water after use and was last serviced about 3 years ago. The 15hp is well suited and powerful enough to push through the rough when called on.
Chinook has great sea going ability, and took her previous owner through fair weather and foul. To Whangaroa Harbour and the Bay of Islands in the north, circumnavigating Great Barrier Island, Coromandel and trips in the inner gulf to Kawau Island. The large cockpit makes for a great great family day sailer.
The reason we are selling Chinook is because we are moving overseas
