It's not every day you get to buy a piece of our maritime history so when the "Murrinui" was presented to us we were excited. Launched in 1956 and lovingly restored to her origional condition. She has a recent survey dated 23 July 2009
Though this boat is a slice of history and mankind's exceptional creativity and skill it is also as comfortable and liveable as any yacht built in the last 20 years! The interior photos speak for themselves - they say "come on in and stay as long as you would like".
The Gardner engine is also a tribute to what we humans are capable of - unlike most newer engines, this Gardner actually has the potential to outlive its creator! These engines are one of the most remarkably well-engineered motors ever put forth to the public.
