Eureka II, a performance cruiser/racer with a charter layout to give her the ability to conduct overnight and extended charters, was built by Bob Robertson to a high standard to include USL 2B Survey and launched in October 2000 at Mooloolaba Queensland. Working primarily out of Airlie Beach, the Great Barrier Reef and Australian east coast, Eureka II has been used extensively as a Sail Training Vessel and has introduced hundreds of people to sailing from an introductory level to Yachtmaster Ocean. Eureka II has competed in many blue water classics and is a regular at Hamilton Island and Airlie Beach race weeks.
This will be her fifth Rolex Sydney to Hobart and is being campaigned by Manly Sailing based out of the Manly Yacht Club in Sydney. Eureka II comes out of race retirement to compete in this 70th Edition of the Rolex Sydney Hobart.
