The Sydney Yachts name needs no introduction here in Australia.

Sydney Yacht (and Bashford Boats) built yachts for the local market for more than 25 years, with a reputation for sturdy, reliable sailing yachts for Australian coastal sailing.
The Aussie design team of Murray Burns and Dovell were the designers of the Sydney Yachts range that included a number of different 36’s, and this successful production boat was originally aimed to the serious club and IRC racer who could do some cruising and offshore racing if required.
COCOMO is a great example, built originally for Sydney based Charter company Eastsail.
She presents well and features a brand-new Volvo engine, recent rigging replacement, and good inventory of sails. A turn-key sailing yacht.
