|Proudly Tasmanian! Professionally built of the finest timbers by a respected shipwright and launched for the 2016 Australian Wooden Boat Festival. Gleaming with new paint and varnish, "Charlotte" is a traditionally styled Tasmanian launch and features Tasmanian timbers. She fits on a trailer so can be easily transported anywhere in Australia. Features include a deep, well-protected cockpit with good visibility, dual steering (tiller in cockpit and wheel in cabin) and a cosy cabin with two berths. A 30hp desel easily drives a very sea-kindly hull. "Charlotte" is an eye-catcher and as a newly-built timber boat she is a rare find.
