SEQUOIA – A Peak Down Below + 4sale

SEQUOIA – A Peak Down Below + 4sale

The 36’ Sequoia is a rather special woody, almost every detail on her is unique to the boat. Designed and built by Lewis McLeod in Helensville in 1938, McLeod was a seriously talented gent and as well as boats, crafted several motor vehicles. He built Sequoia from a single Kauri log, how he obtained the log is one of the many stories that make up her provenance. Her owner has traced and documented her full history, which includes – being raced at regattas in her youth as well as a game fisher and charter boat.
Stem to stem she measures 36’ and has a generous beam of 10’9” and draws just 3’.

Built using the traditional carvel plank method and copper fastened. Powered by a Ford 60hp diesel that was rebuilt by one of NZ’s most respected motor engineers. McLeod was always interested in speed and the 60hp engine combined with her hull shape (refer the flat dead rise in the out of water photos below), gives her a comfortable 8.5 knot cruising speed, but if you use the upper rpm’s she can exceed 12+ knots, an example of McLeod’s design skills.

Her owner has had Sequoia for 20 years and between 2007 and 2009 undertook a full out of water restoration / refit. Recently she received a full repaint of the interior and exterior, as well as being re-caulked and puttied below the waterline. In the photos above you can see she sleeps 6 and has all the amenities of a proper galley and head. 

Yes Sequoia is for sale – but not for long, its a hot market for boats her size (fits in an 11m berth), level of presentation and maintenance / service history.
