Olive May

Olive May
Name: Olive May
Boat Owner: Adam Richards

The Olive May was built in the boatyards at Queenscliff by Keith Cayzer and Christened in honour of his Grandmother. Olive May spent many decades as a fishing boat in the waters around Port Philip Bay. In the early 1990s John Stephenson bought her and enjoyed family time around Sorrento for 17 years. In 2012 the current owner purchased her from John noting that he had admired her lines when last for sale, but missed out to John. Now a very loved boat to her new family, Olive May underwent an extensive rebuild in 2014. She was stripped to the hull & ribs and rebuilt to the fine standard she deserves. Re-powered with 150hp Volvo Penta and added bow thrusters, she now has all the equipment appropriate for chartering Australian waters. Set up predominantly as a day boat, Olive May can accommodate 2-4 passengers for overnight or weekend adventures.
