Here she is a very rare Carvel Hull 1965 Bracken built Coastal Cruiser.

The Peter Lynn has a great history built in 1965 in Kurnell by Peter Bracken from Huon Pine the vessel has been around the country used as a travelling live aboard and with her ocean hull and twin detroits on shafts she is one fine vessel.

From the huge entertaining rear deck up through the 360 comfortable pilot house and on to the 3 cabins and very large salon down through to huge kitchen / dining this boat is layed out to perfection.

Once the start boat for the Sydney / Hobart yaght race.

This is a vessel that make all others look plain. Mechanically it is in fine order, cosmetic clean up is required and we have a plan to bring her back up to her finest appearance.

The current owner is selling due to health reasons and it will be hard for him to part with the boat.

There is a lot of information for the boat and it needs to be seen to be believed, everytime I step aboard it I am inspired by the work gone into building her.

The Peter Lynn is very economical to run and will cruise at 7 to 10 knots, she eats up the distances very well and fuel consumption is minimal.


To build a vessel like this would almost break the bank she deserves to be looking at her best and if so the boat would be almost priceless.
