Our beloved ERIK is for sale… She’s been described as “the best design for the worst weather” in WoodenBoat magazine, she’s a sister ship to Sir Robin Knox-Johnston’s famous SUHALI, she’s been our traveling home for the past eight years.
We bought ERIK from her second owner in Port Adelaide, South Australia. We sailed her home to be a comfortable safe home for our family – our two boys have grown up on-board this safe family cruiser. We have sailed her around the sometimes difficult waters of southern Tasmania for years, where the seaworthiness of her design and construction has been faultless. Her hull and rig are in excellent condition, and her interior is warm and comfortable. Her electronics have been updated and wiring replaced, and her engine is in excellent working order and very reliable.
We’ll be sad to leave her – she’s part of the family and yet our future has other opportunities. So it must be..
