In the 70’s a Melbourne firm “Carbineer Yachts Australia” was building the original Laurent Giles design Carbineer 46 (previously built by Moody’s in the UK ) which had a sloop rig and a small doghouse. In 1978 Danny & Michael Lasky, two wealthy Australian brothers bought the company and sent the design back to Laurent Giles and had the Carbineer 46 design altered to a true raised deck saloon Ketch.
Production of the new Carbineers started in 1979, all made to order with the interiors tailored to suit individual owner’s requirements. Each Carbineer took about a year to construct and at the time they were the most expensive production yachts being built in Australia.
