Mistral’s trademe listing does not tell us much other than she was built in 1947, measures approx. 23’, is powered by a LD 28 diesel engine (is that a Lombardini?).

She was refitted 5 years ago at an approx. cost of $30k. Home is Dunedin & there is a trailer, so would make a cool lake boat.

Any southern woodys able to tell us some more about Mistral?

  1. Looking at the interior photo viewing forward.
    Construction appears to be sawn frames with seam battens.
    That cabin top suggests a US designer. Atkins?


  2. The LD28 is out of a Nissan sedan built in approx late 80’s. Pretty smooth and for a diesel, didn’t make to much noise once warmed up. Very popular in all sorts of conversions as the cars wore out and the engines were still good.
