Back in approx. 2003 I nearly bought Moana, the 23′ Max Carter designed & built clinker day boat. The reason I didn’t was from memory the then owners were asking silly money, they had spent a disproportionate amount of money on her relative to her size & were looking to recover that + the purchase price.

Above are a collection of photos from back in the early 2000’s & fyi below is a copy of a survey that the owners had obtained to gain insurance cover. Moana is powered by a 50hp Perkins diesel.

She has been kept in Milford Marina for a very long time & from my casual observations, well cared for. I was recently made aware that she was back on the market, would make a great lake boat.

Photo below as she is today.

  1. Fair enough – but Ive not seen one here running at 4000 RPM, that must be a later spec than all my paperwork.


  2. Max told me she was built in 4 1/2 weeks, and if we are being accurate the marine Perkins 4108 is actually rated at 40hp
