MALIBU II

The above photo of Malibu on Lake Wanaka comes to us via Len Redwood’s fb page.
Ken Ricketts has commented that from her looks, she is almost certainly a late 1940’s > 1950’s Ship Builders design.
Can we ID her & find out what became of her?
Harold Kidd Input – She’s actually MALIBU 2, built by Shipbuilders in 1952 for Graham West and shipped down via Dunedin by WAIPIATA in 1955. She operated on Wanaka until December 1968 when she was relocated to Stewart Island. Her dims were 40′ x 12′ x 3′ and she had a Perkins 6 cylinder diesel. Corrected. AH

  1. I wonder if the MALABU II ever carried the label “Supa Craft” as with her semi sister ships MAHARA, LADY EILEEN &, ROSEMARY II” — KEN R
