Lipa Lipa Wharram Tiki 38 is for sale

We are offering our beautiful Wharram Tiki 38, Lipa Lipa, for sale.  She is currently lying in Langkawi Island, Malaysia.  We began our dream of building her in  the year 2000 Darwin, Australia, using the best quality materials available. She was launched in 2004 (photos of the launch may be seen under Tiki 38 on the Wharram designs website).  She became a comfortable home for three years, and the first home, at the age of six hours, of our son Arun Lucky, which necessitated the addition of aluminium guard rails as he gradually became more mobile.  In 2007 we took work in the seafaring island of Sulawesi, Indonesia, and sailed Lipa Lipa to our new home in 2008.  She lay at mooring in the historic harbour of Makassar between 2008 and 2010, allowing us to explore the beautiful surrounding islands.  In 2010, we undertook an extended voyage through Indonesia and Malaysia, arriving in Langkawi in early 2011. Lipa Lipa has proven a safe, sea-kindly vessel, looking after us through all manner of weather and sea conditions. She is a very comfortable home in tropical seas, with her large, shaded living area on deck.

We are reluctantly offering Lipa Lipa for sale, as we are now living on land and plan to down-size to a smaller boat. We hope she can take her new owners on further adventures.
