Built on the Banks Gaff Schooner design by her extraordinary Naval architect owner over a period of almost 40 years, 'Woronora' is a yacht that has few equals around the world today.
An impressive sight under sails, with her 7 canvas, proud bowsprit and majestic motion through the seas, she has often been the chosen site of films, photo shoots has twice been the subject of a TV documentary featuring the extraordinary history behind both her build and her builder.

Designed on the lines of the tall ships of lore, 'Woronora' is an extremely strong ship built for extended ocean voyaging for a large crew. She would make an excellent training or expedition vessel capable of going virtually anywhere.

As well as being a naval engineer, her owner/builder is also a well known artists, who is particularly famous for his wood parquetry-type artwork, which was exhibited in some of the most prestigious galleries in Australia. His attention to detail and love of timber is visible throughout the boat and her interior fit-out, with an emphasis on using the wood grain in a way to maximize strength as well as give a beautiful effect. Douglas fir was used extensively, for mast, spars, blocks, window frames and interior.

The interior of the boat is accessed via two companionways, although one can circulate through the whole boat without coming on deck. The main hatch, situated mid-ships lead down a few steps into a giant dining room, where a beautiful fir table seating eight takes center piece. The wood paneling, tasteful decoration and ample light through solid bronze portholes creates a rich a relaxing atmosphere.
The galley leads from the saloon, and is big enough to house a full restaurant crew. It is charmingly fitted out with varnished timber lockers and dedicated storage compartment. The headroom is over 2.2m tall and the lighting is excellent.
Forward of the galley is the main head area, complete with shower in a separate stall, bathtub with timber surrounds, wash basin and toilet. Both fore and aft toilets are electric and fitted with holding tanks.

On the other side of the saloon is another small staircase giving access to the master cabin. This cabin 3.55m by 5.2m with 2.2m headroom. It is virtually as large as the saloon, and fitted out in a most spectacular way, reminding one of the buccaneer of old, with a huge four poster bed, lounge and library area, office to one side and exceptional lighting through a large butterfly hatch and many bronze portholes.

The floor opens into a 2x2m hatch to reveal the engine room, with its exceptionally well maintained engine and generator.

Leading aft from the master cabin is the guest area, with two double cabins, one with a double berth and access to another head area, and the other with two full size single berths. (All berths have lee cloths).

Aft again and up some steps is a semi-circular area for rest or additional crew accommodation, with three full size single berths and access to steerage.

Four additional double cabins are situated below the main cabin and accessed via a staircase in the saloon.
