Jeaneau 319 Multiple - May to June 2019
Previously delivered from Sydney for the 2019 Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show.
Unfortunately for the brokers, no sale at the boat show so the 319 spent a month at Mooloolaba Marina before we were asked to return it to Pittwater.
This time going against the weather, saw the first 3 days beating into at times a strong SE of around 25kts gusting to 35 and 45 in the multiple squalls. The sea off Pt Danger built and we encountered 4 mtr waves for a short period. Testimony to the solid little 319 was how well it handled those conditions. My crew and I were very impressed. A short stop overnight at Coffs to refuel and unblock the holding tank, followed by champagne sailing the remainder of the trip down to Pittwater.
Thank you to crew Murray and new member Justin for their great effort.
Jeanneau brokers Ian Douglas and Lee Condell asked me to deliver this brand new Jeanneau to the Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show for their exhibit. With no instruments whatsoever it meant heading from the Gold coast Seaway to Sanctuary Cove Marina on the flooding tide and relying very much on careful navigation and the accuracy of the charts. Thankfully no ‘touches’ and with a nice S – SE all the way we arrived in just over 3 days.
A truely lovely solid 32ft cruiser / racer for a purchaser who wants a mix of great performance with comfort and head room usually associated with a much larger boat. We had no issues with the boat whatsoever. Thank you to Murray and Ray for crewing this delivery.
