SHIRALEE E64 – Sailing Sunday

Todays photos are from Sian Perrott the daughter of Roy Kendall & show the launch & sailing of his back yard built 28′ E class keeler, Shiralee.

I know nothing about the design or what happened to her i.e. is she still around?

Robin Elliott Input

Shiralee was built from a Gerry Breekveldt design featured in Sea Spray in May 1955.

Took NZYF number 464 in 1969.

Known owners: Roy Kendall 1958/67+?; R. Haysom 1965+? C.R. Kendall 1970?/71+? (Still Registered as Owner NZYF 1999);
Currently unregistered and no any clues to her whereabouts.

Registered dimensions in 1958 28’x 22’8″x 7’4″x 4’2″, 380 sqft, 1.5tons outside, 28hp

The small yacht in the group of 4 pix is the M-class Morere M-32 designed and built by Roly Moreland.  Roy Kendall bought Morere off John Morrison in 1963 and (his sons?) raced her for the 1963/64 season.

Harold Kidd Input – Confirm Breekveldt design. She was rebuilt by Don Roberts and renamed JUMEIRAH. Steve Cranch knows all about her. Roberts owned her still in Auckland in 2012 still with sail number 464.

  2. Hello Robin , I have the same designed yacht called ‘ Fidelity ” that came down to Christchurch from Auckland about 13 years ago . I was wondering if this a sister ship to Shiralee . Built I think in Milford creek in 1960 by Alan Williams .
