Nereides II would have to one of the biggest woodys built in NZ in terms pf length and volume – the Oliver and Gilpin built launch was launched in 1974 and is 66’ in length, with a 15’ beam. Tripe skinned diagonally laid kauri with some of that ‘fg’ stuff on top.
A one owner boat she has sent most of her life cruising the Kings and outer islands on fishing and dive trips, hence the fuel tanks – 5,455L. Powered by twin GM Detroit 671s rated at 275hp a side.
Being ex survey, and reviewing the tme photos (thanks Ian McDonald) Nereides II is very well spec’ed.

I would be very doubtful that Neredies is an O & G build. Looks nothing like their typical build (note the spray rail which suggests a hard chine hull) and the timing does not fit, found this potted history of O & G which states O & G closed 1967
What a huge departure from the standard Oliver & Gilpin concept, but very beautiful, & how fab., to see not only a handed pair of 9/71s, which counter rotate in the engine itself, but also a mirror matched pair, as well. — PERFECTION!!!! — KEN R
