Arch Logan Classic Ngaio For Sale
In 1921 at Ngataringa Bay, Devonport, New Zealand’s greatest boat designer/builder Arch Logan launched the motor yacht Ngaio that had been commissioned by owner H. Partridge.
Logan built this magnificent kauri carvel planked vessel using full length kauri planks i.e. each plank was 39′ long.
Fast forward 92 years & Ngaio was acquired by Auckland architect Ian Kohler, who with partner Lancia undertook one of the most extensive professional restorations to a classic wooden boat we have seen in recent years. Ngaio’s hull was taken back to bare timber, kauri splined & glassed. Every item of engineering & fitting on-board was either reconditioned or replaced.
The photos above & below do not do this classic justice. If you are in the market for a classic vessel – inspection of Ngaio won’t disappoint.
This is a once in a lifetime chance to acquire a piece of NZ’s maritime heritage & is presented in turn the key, sail away condition.
