Tahiti Ketch gaff rigged
Start Auto SlideShow Full Screen PopUp
This beautiful and solid timber gaff rigged Tahiti ketch (mizzen bermudan rigged) was built between 1983 and 1998 when it was first launched in Brooklyn on the Hawkesbury. The first owner, who was an arborist with a vast collection of timber built this lovely vessel with a local boatbuilder along the plans of John Hanna's Tahiti Ketch which he extended to 32'. The timbers used are including but not limited to spotted gum, white beech, oregon pine, teatree, black walnut, merbeau, teak, oak and cypress pine. The boat is professionally built from the cast lead keel to the copper nailed and roved planking (white beech and oregon pine) to the bronze tie rods. Four years ago, with the change of owners the boat has got a new galvanized rig (german heavy duty fishery wire and turnbuckles), an altered sail plan with 9' bowsprit and cutter style double head sails, and a reduced mizzen sail. Running backstayes have been added to the main mast. For more relaxed sailing a steering wheel that operates the tiller has been added and for better windward capabilities the draft has been increased to 5' 4" (1.65m). This configuration has made sailing a pure pleasure!
A yanmar 3QM30 is the iron "topsail" and has been overhauled 3 years ago (new valves, piston and rings). There are 240 L in fuel and the same amount in water, both in two stainless steel tanks each. An epoxy painted steel bracket is mounted on the stern to take the german windsteering unit "Windpilot Model Pacific", this unit can be included in the sale by negotion. Options for a "Simrad" tiller pilot are there, but it is not hardwired and a bracket needs alteration since the addition of the windsteering. The electrical system is minimalistic and includes a new macerator toilet with holding tank, LED lighting, stereo system, one electrical bilge pump, "Lawrence" chartplotter and depth sounder with speed display. There are one deep cycle house battery 110 AH and one starter battery 100 AH for the engine which are both less than a year old. Two solar pannels supply 180 watts of power and are not hardwired to the boat. The galley is fitted with a gimballed "Taylor" kero stove.
There are one 60 pound and one 35 pound CQR anchors, about 60m of 10mm anchor chain and the anchor winch is a manually operated bronze model by "Pioneer".

There is a survey available that is 4 years old, when we purchased the boat, and also we have a certified boatbuilder's statement of condition for insurance purposes, that has been done last October 2016 when we slipped, antifouled and painted the topsides of the boat.
