Wanda II


Built by Lane Motor Boat Company in 1948 for Fred Porter. 38’6″ in length she was rebuilt (year unknown) by the Seftons, so she has good bones & been well cared for. Currently powered by twin BMC Commodore engines.
I understand her owner Chris Horsley, brother of CYA member Steve Horsley (Ngatira), has her for sale. For not a lot of money Wanda II could be a very smart classic motor boat i.e. take the coamings back to a bright finish. The topsides, coamings & interior have been repainted, new squabs & curtains + new head – so we are just talking about a few tweaks, that aside she is ready now for the summer cruise.

Chris can be contacted on 021 111 5631

  1. I am sad to advise that Chris Horsley passed away 3 weeks ago, after a long battle with cancer. He was in his 70s — KEN R
