Jane Kerr is one of the very last commercial timber fishing vessels launched. Built for Garry and Judy Kerr she was used for cray-fishing off Victoria and Tasmania for 20 years. Her current owners have retained her original fishing boat configuration, including an open wet well for holding live crayfish. With her ketch rig, traditional lines and varnished Huon pine transom she is admired wherever she sails.
