    Mango Moon is for sale. She is a 13.3 metre steel multichine based on a Roberts 13.3. Launched in 1984 in England, fitted with an unstayed cat ketch rig, she made her way to Australia. My wife and I purchased her in 2011, in reasonable but less than ideal condition. Over the years, we have given her six years of our lives, lots of $, sweat, and a little blood, and a few tears as well. I have been quiet about her on this forum, but I had intended to write  her story once we had cruised her. Health has dictated otherwise, not all bad, we are going land yachting. Ford f250's go to windward quite well. Mango sits at Mooloolaba Marina in southern Queensland, waiting for a new owner to take her cruising. Briefly, she has a draft of 1.5 metres, twin asymmetrical keels, unstayed masts, top gun sails, deck and topsides painted (deck blasted) about 16 months ago in poly U 400. New sarca anchor, 97 metres of 10mm galvanized chain,  on a triple roller bow fitting at the sharp end, 2014 Finn catamaran dinghy with kapten collars and a 6 hp 4 stroke on the stern. That is so stable,  I reckon that a rap dancer could bounce all over it and not even think about tipping it. Lots more to tell, please contact me for more. Oh yes, the important bit. $89,000 au.

    Well, we still own Mango Moon. So, what do we do in this situation? Pretty obvious, drop $10000 au off of the price. Mango needs a new home. Now $79000 au.
