"Tiaki" is a wonderful example of a classic timber cruising yacht, she is in marvelous condition & much loved by her current fastidious owner. She was created by NZ designer & boat builder Bert Woollacott of Davenport NZ. Built in 1964 & sailed to Australia in the 70's.
She underwent a substantial refit at the hands of Terry Crisp in 1993. Again was given an extensive refit at Deagon Slipways in 2013 including new rigging, including chain plates, new main & genoa, mast & boom refurbished, hull stripped back to bare timber both above & below the waterline, repainted & additional upgrades were undertaken throughout the vessel.
Bilges are always dry & clean, as is the engine bay., the volvo regularly serviced.
She is very well mannered with a good turn of speed, easily sailed & very responsive on the helm, a very practical vessel, simple, uncomplicated sailing.
"TIAKI" HAS RETURNED FROM HER ROLE IN A LOCALLY FILMED & PRODUCED MOVIE CALLED "TRUE SPIRIT" THE STORY OF JESSICA WATSON'S ADVENTURE
