Description: A truly unique Blue Water Cruiser. Please read history below. She is currently located in Fiji,
but do not let the location put you off your chance to own such a superb, well built blue
water cruiser. Use this opportunity to cruise the pacific before cruising back to your home port.
As you will read below this boat is ready for its new owner to step on board, stock up and set
sail.
The vessel had 3 owners.
The vessel was built for the first owner at Seaglass Marine Ltd. Whangarei , New Zealand (this
company was owned by renown naval architect and boatbuilder Alan Orams) The design was
based on the classic L.F Herreshoff vessels: Tioga I and Ticonderoga, using more beam and less
draft. There are 16 sisterships in the 52 ft range each with individual differences.
This vessel was ordered with extra headroom throughout the vessel, the hull was finished in
1976 and delivered as an empty hull to the first owner in Auckland. (only hull with engine,
mast and teak decks)
The owner was a professional joiner and took 3 to 4 years to finish the interior of the vessel,
being hauled out on his property. After finishing she was launched in 1979 and she
made several South Pacific Island voyages. At the time she had a 140Hp turbo charged Perkins
3645 engine, which was rebuilt @ 5000 hrs. to a normally aspirated engine by Perkins/Ovlov
New Zealand. Current engine hrs. reading 8430 (June 2014)
The vessel was sold to her second owner in 1993, under this ownership she had a full refit in
1998/1999 including hull and topsides paint job., interior re-varnished, new upholstery.]
Mast painted and re-gigged, engine lifted and painted, bilges painted.
She had only very little use and mostly lived in Gulf Harbor Marina, NZ.
In 1999 she was sold to her current owner who has used her as a live aboard cruising yacht and
given her constant maintenance and upgrading.
The vessel received a new Furlex genoa furler, a self tacking staysail
track and powerful Anderson primary winches to make her suitable for single handed sailing.
