Presentation

Katherine Scarlette is built to the world famous George Buehler design, and was built by an English boat builder's son in Lethbridge, near Geelong and launched as a completed hull in 1997-8. Since that time, the current Owner has been progressively fitting out the boat internally after installing the 120Hp Perkins Diesel and the associated propeller and shaft, also externally by rigging her as a ketch and creating the access hatchways and the helm station. She is very close to full survey and has been inspected during all stages of work.

It is in today's world a rare opportunity to be the custodian of such a vessel. She has been built with meticulous attention to detail with the specific desire for an unequalled strong vessel. For Insurance reasons, we have had an experienced local wooden Boat Builder who was building the exterior and interior fitout to quote for its total replacement, which is conservatively estimated to exceed $500-700,000.

The greatest feature of the boat is the uncluttered decks, where the wide oiled Merbau capped bulwarks and every cabin top provides seating. If I was going south or was going to charter in Port Phillip, I would recommend the Pilot house extension, however for cruising the Hawkesbury, Sydney Harbour or the Whitsundays, the open decks are truly amazing.
