The classic launch “Seamist” has received a total restoration and now presents in ‘as new’ condition. The hull was stripped including all seams cleaned, refilled and glassed. The deck, cabin sides and top also glassed with topsides professionally painted. The interior was totally remodified with updated equipment and systems. Everything on the vessel is new except the engine, gearbox, shaft and propeller. For ease of handling a bow thruster is also fitted. The engine has only had moderate hours since being reconditioned in 2006. The undercover rebuild was carried out over a three year period and the photos reflect the meticulous work that was completed by the owners.
This Schooner has been fastidiously built by a real shipwright using traditional marine timbers of Kauri, Teak, Iroko, Pohutukawa and Oregon. From the drawing board of Howard Chapelle she has been faithfully created by John Gladden and others. Gaff schooner rig is sensible and easy to use. Sail areas are small and easy to handle. She has a forward pivoted centreboard, operated from above decks. She is powered by a 60hp Nissan and cruises easily at 5-7 knots, with wheel steering with Autohelm to assist. She makes a statement wherever she is anchored and comes with a Mahurangi mooring at Scott’s Landing.

A fine example of a Charles Bailey Jnr racing yacht from the Golden Age of Gaff Riggers. With an interesting history, she has been recently restored to her original rig: gaff, jib, staysail and topsail.
The LWL 40’ gaff cutter was built in 1904, and is the finest example of a Charles Bailey Jnr racing boat of this era and is of historic significance. She has recently undergone an extensive restoration/rebuild back to its original configuration : Gaff, staysail, jib and topsail. She is not only pleasing to the eye, she is also fast and fun to race and has had good success racing in Classic Yacht Assoc regattas. She was a Logan beater when first launched to race against Kotiri and still beats a few Logans today. Can be raced easily with a small crew of 3 or 5, and cruised with only two. Basic but comfortable inside as it was in the day, sleeps up to four. She is in good condition and has a good pedigree with a well documented history.

This is a handsome classic and a very “collectable” launch from a well known American Designer. She has a bright, light interior and a surprisingly modern feel reflecting the new design ideas of the 70’s.
Has a spacious galley/saloon, two heads and a very workable layout for accommodation below.
Her flybridge too is an appealing place to be, with adequate seating and excellent visibility.
Definitely a lifestyle craft!

A beautifully built and maintained vessel, a brigantine with two square sails on the foremast. Built in steel in 1990 by the acclaimed German yard of Lübbe Voss to the highest international and German ship building standards. Designed by Hans P Petersen in traditional style and using modern methods – apart from her masts and spars – she has been maintained impeccably by a master mariner to undertake long offshore cruises in comfort and in style.
Exceptionally well built and maintained with no costs spared in recent refits, to make this boat last. Better than new, as so many items have been improved or added.
Currently in MOSS survey for up to 6 passengers overnight or 10 by day, she has a huge inventory and every system needed for safe and comfortable cruising.
Now reluctantly for sale, with an associated charter business, available separately if required.
