Lass-O-Luss is a Robert Clarke designed sloop built by the famous Tasmanian boat builder Jock Muir.

Launched in 1948 in Hobart, Tasmania for prominent Australian offshore sailor John Colquhoun. She is constructed from Huon Pine and proved herself as a capable, ocean going yacht. Colquhoun raced ‘Lass-o-Luss’ in five Sydney to Hobart races between 1949 and 1960, before selling her to ocean racing legend Bill Psaltis in 1961.
Psaltis shipped the boat to Greece for a cruising holiday (1964-1965) then returned her to Sydney where he sailed her consistently out of the Cruising Yacht Club of Australia.
Her current owners have loving kept ‘Lass-O-Luss’ in good working order and enjoyed cruising her on Sydney’s idyllic waterway- Pittwater!
The topsides and hull below water line have been stripped, sheathed and re-painted. She is fitted with a 30 hp Yanmar engine which has been serviced regularly.

‘Lass O Luss’ has a lot of history and is a superb, classic sailing yacht.
