Ranui was built in 1948 by Lidgard Bros. following a Chris Craft design. She measures 48′ & is made of kauri. The  zoom zoom comes from twin 120hp Fords. She recently returned to Auckland & has just had some TLC at Gulf Harbour that included her coamings being re-varnished.
Check out the link below to a 29 page PDF file that show cases renovation a few years ago & also the history of Lidgards & the Chris Craft marque .

  1. I was speaking to the owner after I took the pics 2 or 3 weeks ago, & she was not for sale then — KEN R


  2. Hi Alan, Is Ranui currently on the market? I’m sure she’ll be out of our price bracket but thought I’d ask anyway.
