Black Swan – Riwaka Inlet

BLACK SWAN Riwaka Inlet

Todays woody is tad different in that Black Swan was designed in Australia but built in NZ by Colin Harman’s father in the 1950’s. 

In the above photos she is at Riwaka, Nelson. Colin commented that these days she is a ‘house boat’ and Nelson is still her home port.

Thanks to John Dawson for sending thru the photos and details.

Do we know anymore about the boat?

The Riwaka Inlet is home to some very fine woodys – I last visited there in March 2019 – see link below and also links to photo essays from friends John Burland and Pauline & Tim Evill – enjoy 🙂
