This photograph (Above) is from the Blog of 'Bursledon Blogger' in the UK, who recently blogged about this boat which is currently berthed close by. http://bursledonblog.blogspot.co.nz/
I was immediately interested because I recognized the design instantly. There are currently two identical boats to this design currently berthed in Whangarei. Coincidentally the other day while on one of my regular walks I watched one of them go under our new lifting bridge.
These designs are interesting because the two boats in Whangarei have crossed the Pacific to be here in New Zealand. I must go down and find out exactly where their respective home ports are. I am assuming that they are voyaging together. The hull design is long and lean making their voyaging relatively economical. I am sure there is more to this story, so now that my curiosity has been caught I will try and find out more.
