photo & details ex Paul Drake
The above photo of Sir Francis was taken at Taupo in 2013. She was built by Collings and Bell in 1916. Sir Francis is 22′ in length & is powered by a Universal Utility Four, dating from 1937. She is a very lucky boat as she lives in a boat shed on Lake Taupo.
One of the amazing things about Sir Francis is that she has had the same owners (the Drake Family) for 75 years.
