ECHO – A Peek Down Below

I have rowed past Echo numerous times at Mahurangi Regatta weekends & admired her. She is a very smart classic woody & the workmanship on her is 2nd to none.

She has appeared on WW before but yesterday she popped up on trademe, so we can enjoy a peek down below.

Echo is a kauri carvel launch built by Les Coulthard in 1935 at Onehunga. She measures 31.81’ & is powered by a Perkins 75hp diesel engine, this allows her to cruise along at approx 7.5 knots.
For the last 17 years Echo has been owned & maintained by a professional boat builder. During this time, she has been recaulked below the waterline & had her topsides kauri splined, the cockpit area has been rebuilt &the bow re-worked to give her a proper anchor bowsprit.
You will see from the photos that Echo is beautifully maintained & presented –  Echo is an amazing buy & would see you cruising in a classic woody this summer.

Someone needs to buy her & quick J

  1. Trying to locate my old mullet boat Echo which was at Whitianga but was taken to Beachlands to be rebuilt by a painter from the marina who I think went overseas before it was completed. The boat has a long history and was raced early last century and I had it as a launch before selling it. It is a 24 ft Mullet boat which had it’s cabin stripped off so could be just a hull?? Very keen to view it and to check on the developments. Any information appreciated. Ron Morgan morganzap@hotmail.com
