Welcome To The Waitemata – Cindy Jane




Welcome To The Waitemata Cindy Jane
These days we seem to lose more woodys to other parts of Auckland than gain them on the Waitemata. So its very cool when we get one back.
I was recently contacted by Steve Taylor to let me know that he had just bought the 34’ Pelin Empress – Cindy Jane. Launched in 1975 she slots into the ’spirit of tradition’ category, built from kahikatea she has been glassed.
I’m always impressed with the amount of space on these woodys.
Cindy Jane is now calling Bayswater home but previously was a Taupo girl.
Steve bought Cindy Lane along to the Woody Classics BBQ at Little Oneroa last month.
Anyone able to tell us more about Cindy Jane’s past?

  1. Hi All,

    Yes, I can confirm she is a 34′ Pelin Empress. Closer to 37′ with the added duckboard.

    She was built in 1975 in Taupo in someone’s home workshop and has spent her entire life on the lake until now. I am the 5th owner apparently.

    Was re-powered a few years back with a reconditioned Chevy diesel and cruises along quite nicely at 8-9 knots.

    Please come and say hi if you see us on the water. Visitors always welcome.

    Cheers -Steve
