This is a vessel built by a tradesperson over many years for the traditionist timber boat lover.
It was a carefully selected design suitable for minimum crewing to cruise on the Australian coast.
Thousands of hours have gone into this labor of love – giving the builder much enjoyment to
achieve the standard of workmanship what he has today.
There is still work to be done before the launching of this new construction.
The owner has realised in recent times that while he would still like to complete the build,
age and health wise this is not going to happen.
He would dearly love to see another enthusiast take over and complete the project.
The engineering machinery inside the boat can be sold in the deal or removed.
The vessel owner would consider a vintage or classic motor cycle as a part trade on this unfinished motor cruiser.
