photos ex Dean Wright

Professional photographer Dean Wright & owner of the classic 1927 Bob Brown built launch Arethusa, sent me the above photos of Destiny at anchor in Waipiro Bay, Bay of Islands last weekend. Dean did a couple of circle around her in Arethusa.

Any of the work boat woodys out there able to shed some light on her past? She is a rather large woody & I assume now retired.

  1. Saw her at Whangaroa just before New Year, anchored in “houghton” bay Milford Island. A strange looking craft, reminds me of a very large kid’s tug-boat toy.


  2. Built in port Adelaide 1973.originally tuna fishing then purse sein fishing been retired for past 10 years,68 footer built from gum so heavy at around 100 ton powered by 8 cylinder kelvin


  3. About 6 or 7 years ago she was moored at Robertsons when I had some work done on my boat there. I believe that she is of North American origin – West Coast?. She has been doing game fishing of the East Coast in recent years and the crew are aces at catching swordfish.
