The Reichel-Pugh designed WILD JOE is one of the world’s fastest 60 foot sailboat, built by the Australian Azzura Marine boat factory in 2002. Wild Oats IX (her original name) is part of a 'legendary' line of Australian racing boats crewed by the Oatley family. The name and ownership change did not interrupt the boat’s success series, and up to now, it holds the record at the Pittwater Coffs Harbour Race, a regatta at which it captured four IRC victories. She has been transformed from her original Admiral’s Cup winning design to a DSS foiling boat using the latest foil and sail technology to take her performance to new levels.
In 2018 WILD JOE underwent a complete refit, including the installation of a DSS foil. The DSS foil, coupled with a completely new sail inventory from Doyle Sails, supervised and developed by Stu Bannatyne, has meant that the performance of the yacht has been increased as much as 40%. Speed increases of 6 knots in moderate wind strengths are not uncommon and the thrill factor for the owner and crew is at a completely different level.
Perfect for the offshore Mediterranean circuit, the West Coast of the USA and the Caribbean, still a potential Sydney-Hobart Winner, WILD JOE is a head turning game changer. WILD JOE is an iconic racing yacht. This is a rare opportunity to acquire such a legendary and perfectly refitted racer at such reasonable price.
