Beverlene was built in 1968 by Owen Wolley & measures 39’, has a 11’9” beam & draws 3’3”, & has a kauri planked hull.
Zoom zoom is from a 120*hp Commer diesel engine that sees her cruising at a comfortable 8 knots.
* trademe listing (thanx Ian McDonald) also states 140hp
Home is Tauranga so she is off the WW radar – can anyone tell us more about here?
Looking For A Woody?
Two classic woodys have recently come on the market – one best described as a ‘rolling restoration’ & the other a ‘turn-key’ craft. The asking prices reflect their for presentation.
Lady Noeleen is a 32’, 1952 Dick Lang built bridge decker that now sports a small-is flying bridge. I nice boat for someone looking for a not to hard project. If I bought her I’d be borrowing Jason Prew’s tungsten tipped chainsaw & removing you know what 😉
You can view more on her at this WW link.
Waiari is a 36’, 1962 Owen Woolley seden cruiser, just screaming out for someone looking to go classic boating – now ! Her owner has moved up to a much bigger woody.
Again more on her at this WW link.

Waiari – Gets A Top Chop
I first featured the 1962 Own Woolley sedan launch, Waiari back in June 2014 & added updated photos in May 2017. While she looked very smart, she had a wee addition on top that in the eyes of some, was a little like ‘a pimple on a pumpkin’.
I’m pleased to be able to say that her owner, Tobias Forsyth has done the deed & given her a haircut J Photo below of the b4 & after. I know which I prefer.
You can read more about her in the comments section of the WW link below.
Proteus was built by Owen Woolley in 1968, she is 38’ in length & powered by twin Commer diesels. Current home is Chaffers Marina, Wellington. That folks is all her trademe listing tells us, can’t see her leaping of the listing sheets with that level of info…………….. Thanks to Ian McDonald for the listing heads up.
Do we know any more about her?
