History- Designed by Harvey Halvorsen and following the style of the famous Halvorsen 32 & 40 'Vikings', the first hull of this design was originally used for the Bass Straight oil rig tender 'Attunga' which carried crew and supplies to the various rigs in sometimes atrocious weather. Two further hulls were ordered and constructed, however the vagaries of Bass Straight caused a rethink and a change to helicopters. The two hulls were then designed with motor yacht layouts and were to become the 'Kanahoee' & 'Banyandah' built for brothers Les & Ron O'Neill. 'Kanahoee' was to become the glamour girl of Sydney Harbour, one of the largest and most luxurious privately owned cruisers afloat, her sistership having traveled to Perth.

She extensively cruised the coast as far north as Lizard Island until 1983 when she was sold to Alan Bond and traveled under her own power, via the Great Australian Bight to Perth. The Bond's entertained aboard and she featured as the start boat for many of the preliminary trial races for the America's Cup. Later sold to a leading Sydney solicitor, she returned to Sydney across the Bight and was crew maintained for family use on the harbour. In 1992 she was sold to the prominent Sydney dentist, the Hon. Dr Derek Freeman and was renamed 'Silver Cloud II' following his twenty year ownership of the old 'Silver Cloud'

For 12 years she was the flagship of the Royal Motor Yacht Club at Rose Bay and also of the Halvorsen Club of which Dr Freeman was Commodore, regularly entertaining VIP's from around the world. In 2003 she was purchased by Tony Mackay who embarked on a massive 2 year programme of renewal and refurbishment, which provided modern efficiency and comfort without diminishing the charm and patina which is the unique hallmark of Halvorsen Craft. - Now offered for sale by genuine vendor. -
