Built in New Zealand by Cookson Yachts in 2001,'Philosophers' is a Cookson 12 Turbo version, in immaculate condition and ready for her next Bluewater Offshore race.
Originally sailed as 'Akatea' in New Zealand and later in Geelong, this yacht has great success on the water. Seen as the benchmark offshore 40'er since their launch, these very fast and exceptionally well-built yachts are the perfect middle ground racer cruiser.
As a race boat "Philosophers" has a comprehensive wardrobe of racing sailing on a Carbon rig with rod rigging. With current IRC and ORCi certification, AYF Category 1 safety compliance, she is quite literally ready to complete at any level.
Please call Tim Vine for further information or to organise an inspection in Sydney.
