This special yacht was built by designer / builder Chris Bowman in Sri Lanka in 2010. The concept is of a low maintenance, modern wooden boat designed for "Spirit of Tradition" style regatta racing. She is based on a Nathaniel Herreschoff design from 1896. Taru sports the long overhangs & lines of the classic era but with a modern underbody of a fin & bulb keel & spade rudder, the best of both worlds.

Construction:
* The keel & backbone are laminated Oregon continuous from stem to transom.
* The hull is 25mm strip Western Red Cedar over laminated merbau ring-frames
* She is glassed inside & out with 850 grm Quadraxial cloth using SP systems epoxy
* Decks are 20mm Burmese Teak
* Cockpit mouldings & floor are solid teak

Taru's design parameters were for her to fit into a 40ft shipping container, with keel & rudder removed she does this nicely. After her build in Sri Lanka she was shipped to Fremantle where she was rigged & launched. Initially she carried a gaff rig which enabled the mast to fit in the container.
After launching & fine tuning Taru was boxed up & shipped to the Caribbean, where she sailed in the 2010 Antigua Classic Yacht Regatta, winning the Prix'd'Elegance award as well as finishing 2nd in the Spirit of Tradition Class. After cruising over 1000 miles, she was then shipped off to Narragansett Bay on the east coast of USA where she sailed in another 4 regattas. Late in 2010 Taru returned to WA, sailing & racing, based at Royal Freshwater Bay YC on the Swan River.
In 2016 Bowman designed & built a Bermudian fractional rig for her, which she now carries. He also removed the cuddy cabin, which opened her up & turned her into an ideal day-sailer.
