Haumoana

Haumoana

Built in 1947 by Colin Wild. Pictured above at the 2014 Lake Rotoiti Classic & Wooden Boat Parade. Haumoana is owned by Glenys & David Wilson & a recent arrival on the lake departing the Waitemata not long after the October 2012 Classic Yacht & Launch Exhibition (photo below) . Speaking of which if I could remember who I learnt my copy of the excellent publication ‘The Colin Wild Story’, commissioned by Tony Stevenson & written by Harold Kidd, I would be able to tell you a lot more about Haumoana – I’m sure HDK will do the honors 🙂

Update from Harold Kidd

Ever the anorak.
HAUMOANA was built by Colin Wild in 1949 for C.F. & E.J. Clark of Warkworth. She is 30’x9’5″x4′ and originally had a 93hp Kermath petrol engine. The Clarks sold her in 1958 to Dr. W. Claude Horton of Auckland by when she had a 4 cylinder 60hp Ford diesel. Joint owners (or maybe subsequent owners) were Mr & Mrs Carl Meinhold. Dr. Horton registered her as a British Registered Ship under No. 315006. M Wilson of Paihia had her in 1973. I see she is now quoted with a loa of 34ft. Was she lengthened or did someone have an elastic tape-measure? Listed as 31′ in the Lake Rotoiti records. AH

  1. I’ve finally come across an original photo of Haumoana, I had always wondered what her cabin style was originally. Seems that it was as per front and rear section, but lower the bridge back down to sedan style with two more windows that match the aft two.

  2. Haumoana had some extensive work done approx 4 years ago by the then owner and Half Moon Bay Boatbuilders (Auckland) and was in the boatbuilders shed at Half Moon Bay for many months before being on-sold with an unfinished interior to Simon Kidd. He has subsequently sold her on.
