Beautiful and fast classic yacht
Oenone was built in Geelong in 1900 by Charles Blunt for John Cumming and at the time was named Violet IV. John died in 1901 and the incomplete Linton Hope designed 30 rater was sold to Sydney where she was renamed Oenone. There are several references to her racing and changing hands up until 1935 but the most interesting was that she was advertised in 1918 for sale in the Sydney Morning Herald as the fastest boat on Sydney Harbour.
Oenone (pronounced En-own-ee) is a very beautiful boat, easy to sail, and absolutely perfect as a picnic yacht or as a classic race yacht. Look the part on all occasions. You can be the custodian of one of the most unique historical yachts in Australia. She is sound, fast and ready to go.
