Boatspeed Frers 62 - Margaret Rintoul V
MARGARET RINTOUL V (MRV) is performance cruising sloop designed by the world renowned German Frers and built by one of Australia best in Boatspeed. She is a modern classic that is regarded as one of the most beautiful yachts on the Australian East Coast.
MRV's beautiful hull features a raked stem, L shaped, lead bulb bottom fin keel with a carbon blade rudder. Constructed in FRP over an end grain balsa core the hull boasts strength and integrity whilst also being light, stiff and very fast. There is a comfortable and easily accessible aft scoop for boarding and swimming.
MRV is simple on deck with sunken Harken furler forward, freshly re sprayed decking and minimal teak for ease of maintenance. She has a large aft cockpit, ideal for entertaining and the electric hydraulic Lewmar winches make short handed racing or cruising very easy.
MRV sports a 26 metre carbon, white painted triple aft swept rig with recently serviced Nitronic S/S rod rigging, Kevlar backstay, Fredrickson car system and a carbon with a lazy Jack bag. The Navtec hydraulic vang, outhaul and backstay adjuster makes this rig simple and straight forward however capable of highest level racing when needed.
Below decks the interior is finished in a very high quality American Rock Maple joinery, carpet and a padded headliner. As you come down below there is a large u shaped galley with an abundance of storage, a 4 burner gas stove and full oven, microwave, refrigerator and separate freezer.
Moving forward is a large saloon with comfortable seating for 8 people plus navigation and entertainment stations. A spectacular area to review a day on board or to share a meal and glass of wine with friends or family.
The deluxe Owner's quarters forward has a separate ensuite are located in the bow. An amazing amount of storage has been incorporated into this very carefully thought-out and beautifully crafted design. Extended time aboard is a very attractive option for owners and their guests.

MRV come with a huge list of extras for cruising and racing including a generous wardrobe of racing sails, Category 2 safety gear, instrumentation with pilot & GPS, tender, outboard, dodger and cockpit awning, varnished teak cockpit table, VHF and HF, dual alternators, hydraulic anchor winch, a Yanmar 140HP diesel with gori folding propellor and more.
Further enhancing the appeal of Margaret Rintoul V is the fact that she is currently in RMS Survey Class IE. Whilst charter activities are currently very carefully selected to minimise wear and tear the opportunity exists to increase charter income and therefore significantly offset annual vessel maintenance and marina costs.
MRV is one the most eye catching and stylish yachts in Australia. Owning such a fine vessel would be a proud moment for her next owners.
