Porter Ketch 1959 (Jarrah)

Built in 1959 at Birkenhead Yards in Port Adelaide by Bill Porter to a design by Scottish naval architect McBride. The hull is jarrah, completely refurbished by Andy McFarlane over 2020-2021. All ribs have been inspected and repaired as necessary.

The engine (Kubota/Beta 50hp) was inspected by a marine diesel mechanic and filters renewed in mid-2020 and the engine regularly turned over since. The diesel tanks were flushed in December 2020.

Batteries were replaced in October 2020 and new masthead lights fitted.
Narda II is currently in survey, available on request.

- GPS
- Fishfinder
- Autopilot
- Radar
- current EPIRB
- Dinghy
- Compass
- VHF Radio
- Fenders
- Manual and Electric Bilge Pumps
- 2 Solar Panels

We are selling because coronavirus delayed repairs to the hull and our plan to sail to Tasmania in Narda II in 2020 proved impossible. We hope someone else will be able to enjoy Narda II for the beauty she is.
