Merita – 6 Years Older

MERITA – 6 YEARS OLDER

The 1965, Jim (James) Dymock built 38’ launch – Merita, last appeared on WW in June 2016 when Murray Morrissey sent in a great collection of photos from her her launch day at Milford, Auckland. I understand that Brin Wilson had a hand in designing the cabin top. Link here to that story https://waitematawoodys.com/2016/06/06/merita-launch-day/

Prior to the above story, thanks to Pamela Cundy, Brian Worthington & Ken Ricketts we got to see more photos of the boat in the 2013>2015 period. Link below https://waitematawoodys.com/2015/08/24/merita/

Lots of photos & intel at those two links – read the comments as well.

Fast forward 6 years and Jason Prew spotted Merita berthed at Gulf Harbour, looking very smart. Somewhere along the way she has ‘lost’ her mast, but in my view looks better for it.
