    Frida (Arafura Cadet catamaran) is for sale!

    The Arafura Cadet is a 11′ catamaran designed as a training boat for teenagers. It was designed in the 1950’s in Darwin by Neil Fowler (Mosquito, Arrow).

    I bought the boat in 2014 and took a couple of years to completely rebuild it. The only things left from the boat as I bought it are the hulls, centreboard, rudders, rudder boxes and trampoline.

    I stripped the hulls back to bare timber, repaired and repainted them. The trampoline is in excellent condition. The timber rudders and centreboard are in very good condition. The aluminium rudder boxes are in excellent condition.

    New beams, rigging, ropes, hardware and sails. New Goodall square top sail and jib are basically in as new condition.

    The rebuilt boat has only sailed about 10 races. All in light conditions.

    There are heaps of photos of Frida on my Arafura Cadet Facebook page – (look for the ‘Frida January 2018’ and ‘Arafura Cadet 738’ albums).

    Comes with lightweight beach trolley.

    No trailer – but the AC fits easily on a 6×4 box trailer or roof racks.

    Sailing gear to suit teenager (used) also available by negotiation: Zhik T3 trapeze harness, Zhik HiVis PFD, Ronstan wetsuit pants, Ronstan Smock, Ronstan Wetsuit top, Mid layer, gloves, boots, hat, safety knife, waterproof gear bag.

    Located in Geelong, Victoria. Can help with some transport in Victoria.

    I have an Arrow Cat for sale. It is wooden hulls with gold anodized rigging (mast boom and tracking). This boat is watertight in excellent condition as it was sanded and re varnished with Watson feast marine varnish prior to shedding. It has always been undercover in boathouse or garage.

    Hi Everyone, we are looking to purchase an arrow for my 14 year old teenager. We live in Victor Harbor SA and hoping to compete with it at the Nationals in December.

  • Andy Duffield says:

    Looking for an Arrow in good condition ready for racing on trailer

  • Rod Bathgate says:

    Hi All,
    I am after 2 arrow hulls to replace the old rotting mismatched pair that now need major repairs.
    They can be in need of minor repairs or desperately need painting.
    Even 1 hull would allow me to return to the water as there is no racing left in me now !
    I don’t need any of the fitting as all the other non wood bits are in really good condition.
    I am in Newcastle, but don’t want to travel beyond the eastern states.

  • Philip Cox says:

    PLEASE PHONE 0409 036443 Phil Cox

    I would be interested in second hand arafura main sail or complete rig. I’m in brisbane and I know posting battens (and masts!) is an issue, I would be up for a bare sail. Just needs to be useable.

    This is a temporary number that should work for about 6 weeks after I post this. After that I’ll pop up a new one. SMS is better than calling. I can reply with my normal number and email. 0455298815

    • Damian Carvolth says:

      I also put a post up on the AC facebook page, you can get in touch via FB if that suits.

      Any mainsail will do about that size. Foot 2.090 Luff 5.190. I’ve got some old 14’sails available for swap if that is of interest. 1 hobie, 2 maricat.
