A lot of solid kauri boat for $40,000

Kotuku is for sale - Allen Williams designed and built.

Back in the water after a pre Xmas antifouling - Carboline Sea Barrier 3000. Propspeed coatings on the brass prop and rudder.

Several inquiries into the two stainless diesel tanks - looks like they hold approx 100 litres each.

On a mooring in Parua Bay nearest boat to the yacht club, very handy for use on the weekends. Fishing during the week is fantastic - highly recommended.

A couple of years ago we added new carpets and curtains - recovered all the squabs. New batteries were installed. And a brand new back cover.

New prop shaft and shaft bearings were all fitted. Painted inside & out. New roof at the rear and in the middle then fibre glassed. All windows were removed and resealed. Not many boats available will have had such an extensive refit.

All boat builders comment that the quality of the construction and the materials used on Kotuku are exceptional. Her ribs are a hand width apart and the joinery is superb. One boat builder who hauled her out regularly in the Bay of Islands for anti fouling would point out how straight and true her keel is.

Originally we based her in the Bay of Islands, and have made trips to Kawau, Gt Barrier and Whitianga in previous years. Relaxing family holidays, and lots of fish caught. Better than any holiday bach - no rates or lawns to mow.

Major refits gave us a great galley - large toilet and bathroom at the rear, sleeping for six and a huge duck board. Fully re wired to modern standards and now with LED lighting..

Kotuku is very economical. A low revving & economical BMC Commodore 3.4 litre diesel engine with updated fueling (modern filters) and cooling systems (Ford heat exchanger). All the manuals are available.

Comes with an Aquapro Tender and 8hp long shaft Yamaha outboard. Please click here to ask a question
