Lady Sam


Collings & Bell built Lady Sam in 1925. Approx. 32’ long & constructed of kauri planks. She is powered by a 80hp 6 cyl. BMC diesel.

She underwent a major refit & near complete rebuild in 2002. Home is the Coromandel Harbour. Recently for sale on trademe.

Can we confirm & expand on her history?

  1. She may well have been built by Collings & Bell in 1925, but not under that name. When she was on Trade Me last year I tried to get some proof of provenance from her owner, but without success.
    So treat her claimed provenance with scepticism.
    Before that bridgedeck went on she was a pretty decent looking launch which could have been built by any one of perhaps 20 Auckland firms.
