It Might Be Wood – But It Sure Isn’t A Classic

The above boat was bought to my attention on trademe by James Dreyer, its listing states it’s a mid 1930’s build, 41’ twin skin kauri hull, with a beam of 14’9” / draft 3’3” – but somewhere along the line its been turned into a floating apartment.

Interestingly the main engine has been removed and replaced with ballast, & she now has two 15hp 4 stroke outboards hanging off the back.

Her owner is very honest & states that she is only really a vessel to potter in the marina and potentially the harbour on a calm day, so woodys if you’re looking for a love shack in Wellington…..

My real reason for posting was to give Jason Prew some interior decorating hints for his My Girl 🙂

  1. Hi, put a cuppla 50 Cal machine guns on her and pass her off as a Mekong Delta gun boat. Cheers.

  2. Was an ex fishing boat. Had a 6lw Gardner in it.
    A sinking episode some years back resulted in engine being removed.
    (That’s a lot of rope hanging up next to the double bed in the boudoir. The mind boggles 😉😉)
