Built by Sydney yachts in 1999, and overall the winner of the Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race in 2001, Bumblebee V is a Murray Burns Dovell 60 now exclusively for sale with YOTI.
After a hugely successful race career early in her life, Bumblebee V was purchased by a well-known Australian yachtsman in 2014. His brief to navel architects was to create a fast and safe 60' high quality racer cruiser that could be sailed by his family.
Accommodation was improved with the addition of a large V-berth, pressure hot water added to the galley and both heads and a jet bow-thruster fitted for easy berthing. In 2018 a new Yanmar 75hp diesel was fitted and a new sail drive added to that in 2020.
In 2015 a swept rig and single backstay were fitted, as was a bow prodder, headsail furler and an electric cabin top halyard winch. All of the instruments were replaced with a new suite of B&G and in 2017 a wardrobe of North 3Di upwind sails and 2 Asymmetric spinnakers were added to the specification.
In beautiful condition, Bumblebee 5 has been meticulously improved with no expense spared by her current owner over the past 5 years.
Please contact Tim Vine for further information and to organise an inspection in Sydney.
