Following on from yesterdays gallery of work boats from Port Chalmers, today we have a photo taken by Dean Wright of a very salty looking Matahui, berthed at Port Chalmers.

A lap of Stewart Island would not be a problem for this old girl, keen to know more about her.

  1. Previously listed on WW a year or two back -should amalgamate the two. Fell in love with her in 1962 or 63. Originally powered by a Coventry Godiva (always thought that name was a good in joke that few people got). Built mid ’50s -the earlier listing has a picture of her being launched. Max Rolfe owned he when he was on Kawau – his house is now the Pardy’s but much improved.


  2. Athol Burns 36, built Wellington approx 1960. Ex Nelson boat, sold to current Dunedin owner around 2013. Gardner 4LW powered. Looking good!
