MATAROA (Kenya) – Looking For A New Owner.
The 1928 Joe Slattery built 36’ launch – Mataroa (previously named Kenya) has popped up on WW numerous times – enter her name in the WW search box to see and read a lot more on her.
The link below has a cracker of a story from 1970 when she had a near sinking at Gt Barrier Island.https://waitematawoodys.com/2017/04/29/mataroa-kenya-3/
Back in 2016 she received a refresh to her exterior but her interior remained almost un-touched, which it still is today.
Powered by a Ford 80hp diesel, like all Slattery designed craft she has a respectable turn of speed (11 knots).
Mataroa’s owner for the last 6+ years has made the big call and decided that she deserves a new custodian that will complete the final work to bring her back to her former glory. As they say “all the hard works done” just needs someone handy with the tools to tidy the interior up.
