Start Auto SlideShow Full Screen PopUp
Pretty as a picture, completely restored and ready for another century afloat! Built in about 1892,"Clara" is a gaff-rigged cruising yacht, designed and built in Tasmania of kauri. She has a well-documented history in a succession of owners and had undergone several conversions when the present owners bought her in 2011. She is now for sale in exceptional condition at the end of a very comprehensive refit at the world-renowned Wooden Boat Centre in Franklin, Tasmania. With traditional round bilge, straight stem, wineglass transom and centreboard, she now looks very much as she did in her prime, just prior to World War 1. A new Yanmar diesel complements the new mast, rigging and sails all constructed in a traditional manner in modern materials.
