1999 ADAMS 13



One of designer Joe Adams’ most popular, the Adams 13 is well known in Australia. The Adams 13 it’s essentially a 36 foot yacht stretched to 43 feet to produce a narrow hull that’s roomier below deck and more slippery through the water.

This Adams 13E is versatile; she’s nimble enough for racing around the buoys, has had a long successful career as an offshore racer, and has also proven to be a competent blue water cruising vessel. With a centerboard, which when pulled up aids downwind performance and usefully draws barely over one metre for cruising into those shallow bays.

Not surprisingly owners report the boat is easily handled and fun to sail.
