"Santika" is a Sanskrit term which literally translates to "harmony". A particularly apt way to describe the manner in which this Aussie classic interacts with the wind & sea. A trueshoal draught blue water cruiser, she is fully equipped and ready for anything from cruising the coast & islands to trans-ocean passages.
A 42' Schooner, professionally built in steel, to a multi-chine design combining the ideas of two great Australian designers. Alan Payne & Len Hedges were noted for their ability to marry traditional lines with modern materials and they created designs that were practical,efficient and sea kindly. Her builder, Alan Miell considers her the best yacht he had built and recalls that she "sailed like a witch!" Designed and built for a couple who cruised in the Southern ocean and Bass strait, Santika is easily handled and is a character filled, comfortable and confidence inspiring passage maker.
