The above photo of Alecia comes to us via Len Redwood’s fb and on there Nathan Herbert commented that she had all the hallmarks of a Bailey, looking very similar to Romance I.
Nathan also commented that based on a photo he had seen of her with a marlin across her stern, she most likely spent time in the Bay of Islands, game fishing.
Being a Bailey it goes without saying but she is a stunning looking.
Can anyone tell us more at Alecia’s past and what became of her?

ALECIA was built by Bailey & Lowe for A.N. Breckon in October 1920 at Sulphur Beach. The last owner I have is A L Barker of Remuera in 1957 (although that could easily be another ALECIA).
