Mystery Launch at Lake Rotomahana

The above launch is obviously a tourist / charter boat but the styling is very ‘out there’. Photo comes from Lew Redwood’s facebook page. Nathan Herbert has commented that she has a nice looking hull, the question is from whom & when did the top 1/2 arrive?

The caption states: Steaming Cliffs, Waimangu, Rotomahana.

Lake Rotomanhana, Rotorua, is the North Island’s deepest lake & increased it size x20, as a result of the 1886 Mt Tarawera eruption.

Any woodys able to shed some lift on her background > & what became of her?
