Fantasy – Whangarei Town Basin

FANTASY- Whangarei Town Basin

Did a dash to Opua yesterday – up and back – long drive. Stopped in at Whangarei on the way back to check out the Town Basin wharf area – Always good for a few woodys.

The above launch was on a pile mooring and looks familiar but the brain came back with a – ’no match’ – I’m sure someone will ID her, very well cared for.

  1. Fantasy for sure Catherine keeps a high standard of maintenance like all the women owners !
    Will send some interior shots , underfloor 75 hp Sole diesel makes for a big light airy interior .

    Thanks Bruce – couldnt see the transom, that would have made the ID easy 🙂 Email the photos to below. Alan H

  2. She is the FANTASY, by Mac McGeady (Supreme Craft Ltd), & built at 1A Summer St Ponsonby for Colin Lannam, in 1952, who was an artisan cabinetmaker, & completed her interior himself. She is still looking wonderfully original except the varnished coamings, have sadly long since gone. — KEN R
