Mystery Bayswater Launch

MYSTERY BAYSWATER LAUNCH

Mooching around Bayswater Marina last week I spotted a new addition, she had slotted into the berth previously occupied by the unlucky Parma https://waitematawoodys.com/2022/08/04/classic-launch-parma-sinks-under-harbour-bridge/

No name but looks either recently done up or very well cared for. Owner must like the colour white 🙂

Can anyone put a name to the launch and ideally more details?

Thanks to input from a ‘Steve’ in the comments section – he reminded me it has been on WW before – link below – but we still do not have confirmation of name. https://waitematawoodys.com/2022/06/07/1953-jorgensenmystery-launch/

Input ex Murray Deeble – Was in the South Island and featured as the detectives launch in a NZ made TV series lay in Milford called Sea Princess for a while getting worse and worse.

  1. Did a little “research” and found her (current) name is “Sea Prince” and that she did indeed change hands recently.
    Assuming the Jorgensen referred to was Jorgensen & Sons of Waikawa, Picton, then either the given build date of 1953 is wrong, or the builder was not Jorgensen & Sons; they didn’t start up until the early 60s.

  2. Doesn’t look like a Swanson to me. Doesn’t look like snot either; I haven’t seen a plastic boat that shape.
    Had a look at that previous post on her, and if she was indeed built in 1953 then she’s not a Jorgensen.

  4. Vaguely jogs a memory, but I can’t actually place her. One of my last functioning “leetle grey cells” is saying “Picton”. No doubt someone will be along to tell me I’m wrong. 🙂
    The unfortunate “Parma” is still on the hardstand here, and nothing much seems to be happening with her.
