This auction is for a fabulous limited edition print of famous Charlies Bailey Junior built Double Ended Ferry ‘Kestrel’.

The ‘Kestrel’ was Auckland’s most significant maritime icon with rich cultural and historical value. For over a century she plied the Waitemata serving generations of New Zealanders. She was the ultimate Edwardian verandah gliding across the jewel of our harbour.

The ‘Kestrel’ was built by Charles Bailey Junior at the site of the Tepid Baths, Auckland, and was launched on 14 December 1905.

She was built of 3 inch thick heart Kauri, single skin on wooden frames with 1 inch Totara sheathing. Measuring 123 ft (37m) long x 28.5 ft (8.7m) beam x 9ft (2.8m) draft.

The ‘Kestrel’ was the last of the big double ended Waitemata Harbour Ferries still afloat.
Purpose built for the Devonport run she carried up to 20,000 passengers a day and was also used as an excursion boat.

She was converted from steam to diesel in 1952 and has a Crossley 6 cylinder 450hp diesel engine.

This print, signed and framed under glass, is print number 100 of a print run of 750 and initialled and numbered by the artist.

Very good condition. Highly collectible.
