Broker's Comments

Here's one for the wooden boat enthusiasts, built by her first owner, Phil Sissons in a boatshed at Evans Bay, New Zealand. Her keel was laid in 1947 but she was not finished until she was launched without a rig in 1978 as “Reflections of Wellington” – 31 years later! Photos taken on launch day are available. An interesting aside is that her 4 cylinder Ford diesel engine was purchased brand new in 1965 and so sat in the boat unused for 13 years being periodically turned by hand . Sadly Phil Sissons passed away before his creation was launched.
The next owners were 3 young men who finished her off and launched her without a rig. They lived in the roof space of an old boatshed to save money while they worked on their dream, which included sailing offshore, but was not to be. However, they sailed across Cook Strait many times, albeit without even a compass ! She was then sold to Brian Parker of Wellington who fitted her out to a higher standard and raced her extensively out of Wellington. She reputedly won a Cook Strait race by 7 seconds.
There was then another owner who brought her to Whitianga on the Coromandel Peninsula where her current owner first saw her. He bought her in 2002 and took her to the Bay of Islands in 2004. His ambition was to sail offshore, however, there was a lot of work and re-equipping to be done before she could be totally ready.
There followed in 2006/7 a refit in Kerikeri, Bay of Islands and then a move in 2008 to Whangarei to the Norsand Boatyard where Noel Barrott, their master shipwright took over and completed the refit.
Contact us for the owner's full specification, boat history and details of the refit work completed from 2006 to 2009.

***Owners have now purchased an apartment ashore and drastically reduced the asking price as they are ready to move on.***
