photos & details ex owners Jim and Hazel Cameron
Ngahere was built in 1961 by Roy Gibbs & is 37’6″ with a 12’3″ beam. Her flybridge was added at a later date, possibly in mid 70’s but removed (rotten) when the Cameron’s transported her. Hazel & Jim purchased Ngahere off Frank Malcom Davison of Whangamata in 2013 and they have a sales agreement dated 28/10/1978 stating F. Davison purchased the vessel from John Fredric Hamaty. They also have an old 1976 Coastguard book which states Ngahere was owned by N.G. Robertson, the last two names from Auckland.
Her semi-displacement hull was re-powered early in 1973 with a Commer TS3 diesel engine.
Can any woodys throw some light on the design of this launch?
ps sorry about the low quality photos – hopefully we might uncover better photos from her past.
