Description

Built from Huon Pine, originally with an open style cockpit that included a fish well, she was considered a gun boat in her time. Only sold by the O’May family when Dave passed away. The subsequent four owners appreciating her build quality and lineage have maintained her accordingly over the last sixty years. A major refit was undertaken approximately thirty years ago, shortening the rig and enlarging the cabin trunk to incorporate the pilothouse saloon amidships. Her current three cabin layout provides a sense of privacy and security throughout yet with excellent vision and natural light. The high quality fitout maintains the traditional timber features surrounded by the richness ofHuon Pine.
Stepping down forward of the pilothouse into a second saloon cabin incorporating dinette, excellent galley, full bathroom and forward vee berth cabin. The owners cabin orsteerage is located aft and easily accessed through the pilothouse.
While incorporating all the conveniences of a modern cruising vessel, Moorina’s powerful hull is easily driven by her easily handled cutter rig and assisted when called upon by her more than adequate 65 hp. diesel auxilliary.
