The above gallery of photos of the launch – Erewhon, were sent in by Kerry Alexander. Erewhon was once a very salty woody, sadly these days she is high and dry in Helensville at the Kaipara Cruising Club. In another life, Erewhon was a registered long-liner, owned by a friend of Kerrys, Great Barrier Island resident, Brian Burrell, who currently owns the woody – Lynmar.

Can anyone tell use the designer / builder? And what became of her between long-liner at being parked at KCC.

  1. Erewhon’s hull was designed and built by Dave Jackson in 1959 and the vessel was completed by Arty Perkin. Brian Burrell bought her in about 1964 to replace his previous longliner,”Easter Toiler”. He replaced the cabin and fitted her out for commercial longlining, eventually selling her in the early 1970’s.
