General Description

The Vaucluse Junior is an iconic Australian sailing boat designed in the 1930s as a "learn-to-sail" boat for children and teenagers. These days you are more likely to find wooden examples of these beautiful little boats displayed in museums & sailing clubs than out on the water.

The VJ has become a nautical treasure and examples can be seen on display at the Bayview Yacht Racing Association (BYRA) and the Australian National Maritime Museum at Darling Harbour. More on the history of the Vaucluse Junior.

This particular VJ has been restored. It comes with all original banana boards, rudder, mast, boom and sails.
