SIHAYA is a custom design from the late Colin E Philp, originally of Hobart, Tasmania. This exquisite traditional steel cutter was specially built for extended world cruising in comfort & safety. She is easy to handle and if necessary, can be sailed single handed. She is a lovely robust yacht with minimal complex systems. Every system on board has been well thought out, tried & tested. The keel was laid on this custom built yacht in 1980 then completed and launched in 1987.
