Ruah – a big Australian Woody

Ruah might have been built in Australia in 1944 but she now calls NZ (Nelson) home.  At 78′ long with a 17′ beam & made with 2 skins of Jarrah, on opposite diagonals she is a big girl.
Built for the Australian Navy as a survey ship, over the last 15 years she has been converted to a luxury pleasure craft.

Ruah is powered by a 175hp 6LX Gardner diesel, which was fitted in 2013. A peek at the Gardner will give you an indication of how much this wee ship has been cared for. She is also a registered NZ Ship reg. No. 1910.
Thanks to Ken Ricketts for bringing her trademe listing to ww’s attention – she would make a wonderful long haul cruiser or live aboard.
