Lady Eileen Launch Day
Another great launch day photo ex Harold Kidd from the Tim Windsor collection. This shows the 1947, Shipbuilders/SupaCraft bridge decker – Lady Eileen post sliding down the rails. Lady Eileen has made frequent appearances on WW – check out the clicks below to view her past & current restoration it owner, Hylton Edmonds Bay of Islands property.
One of the CYA’s most iconic classic woodys ‘Monterey’ is for sale. The bridge decker was launched in 1946. She is Lidgard designed and built. I have spent a lot of time aboard & her layout makes her an ideal family cruiser for the Hauraki Gulf and beyond.
Built of 2 skin kauri with glassed cabin tops and decks she is ready for the summer season. During owner Mark Edmonds ownership, her hull was professionally stripped down to bare timber, filled, fared and painted. Power comes from a 130hp Ford Dover engine, reconditioned 470 hours ago by Moon Engines.
Monterey cruises at 8-9 knots. Will suit a passionate classic wooden boat enthusiast. Marina also available for sale or rental at OBC.
Specs: 33’6” ’x 10’6” x 2’7”
