TURONGO – Gets Revamp
Late 2019 Turongo the 1966 Salthouse built bridgedecker was for sale in Auckland, at nearly 56’ and with 640hp she is a very daunting classic woody.
A new owner was found in 2020 and Turongo sadly moved south to Picton, where after a ‘refresh’ that included alot of system upgrades, she changed hands again (another southern owner). Today we get to see her post the refresh and just prior to changing hands. A truely magnificent classic vessel that will bolster the classic woody fleet down south. Hopefully one day she will emigrated north again 🙂
A quick snapshot – 56′, 16’4” beam, 3’11” draft, 25400 kg displacement, twin Caterpillar 3208 diesels, 10>19 knot speed range, 10 berths.
