brindabella

Brindabella was designed by Jutson for the Snow family in 1993 and built by Boatspeed the folowing year. She was campaigned for over 14 years by the same owner which, in the fickle world of modern offshore racing, must be a record in itself.

Brindabella holds more race records that any other yacht currently racing on the Australian east coast, including the Sydney Mooloolaba, Sydney Gold Coast, Sydney Wollongong,  Sydney Newcastle and the Bird Islet races. 

Brindabella also recorded the fastest time ever for a conventionally ballasted boat in the Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race, when she sailed the 628 nautical mile course in 1 day 20 hours 46 minutes 33 seconds,  only an hour behind the record-breaking, water ballasted Nokia.
