photos ex Alan H & trademe
I have always admired Darleen when refueling RainDance at the Orams fuel berth as Darleen is normally berthed down at the Viaduct amongst the super yachts. The top 4 photos above I took at the Mahurangi Regatta in 2015. The others are ex. trademe. All I know is that she was launched in 1920, is 34′ long & powered by a 65hp Ford diesel. You will see that a lot of time & effort has been spent re-fitting her to a high standard, from memory I think her owner is engaged in the boat building/rigging industry.
Any of the woodys able to expand on her in terms of builder & history?
