Description

Mallana represents a period in Australia’s maritime history which has almost been lost. She was designed and constructed from an era in Tassie without any influence from the racing rules of sailing, half fishing boat, half yacht. Maintaining the aesthetics of the era, her traditional gaff sails are hand finished and hoisted by hand. Much admired, she is featured in Ben Mendlowitz, 2019 Wooden Boat Calendar.
