Remarks  Built in 1984 by the foreman of Zeston Yachts, Bob Boreham, to be his own boat. Bob, as the ex foreman of Swanson Yachts was a timber boat man. So, his new Zeston was going to have lots of timber in the fitout and look like a more traditional yacht than a motorsailer. The stern was given a sugarscoop. This was later copied by Zeston when they changed their name to Buizen. She sailed successfully for many years as a cruiser/racer at the CYC & RPAYC. She did the 1991 Sydney/Hobart finishing mid fleet. She is well maintaind and upgraded enjoying twilight racing and coastal cruising at the RYCT in Hobart
