TYPEE
photos & details ex Brian Cuthbert

Typee is a 33′ Baxter boat built in Whangarei in 1968. Alex Baxter moved to Whangarei about 1958 from Picton where he had worked for Roger Carey for many years.
After Typee he built Pandora (his biggest at 48ft for Brookie Richards) then Valiant (photo below) a sister to Typee which is still line fishing in Northland.
After a brief time trawling in Whangarei Typee ended up in Auckland seine fishing and owned by Ivan Guard. Brian bought  her from Ivans estate in 1993 and has owned her since. For the last 12 years Brian has worked her as a charter fishing boat out of Gulf Harbour.
She is powered by a Gardner 5LW and cruises at a comfortable 7 1/2 knots.

  1. “Pandora” was a frequent visitor to Tin Can Bay here in S.E.Qld a couple of years ago, I think he was chasing blue fin tuna and discharging in Mooloolabah. I think they just came in here for RnR

  2. Hi,
    We have pictures and details of the construction and fishing of the Pandora if you would like us to send them. We had her built 1969 and owned her for 10 years.
    We are away from home at the moment but can sort them out when we are home in July.
    Regards
    Brooke and Sue Richards.
