This historic yacht was launched on 30th December, 1935. Tawera was designed by Arch Logan and built by Colin Wild of Stanley Bay. Her first race was the Auckland Anniversary Regatta in January 1936.
She was Arch Logans last big cutter, measuring almost 50 feet on deck and the culmination of a number of racing keelers built at that time. As the largest of the more modern keelers from Arch Logans drawing board she represented the very best in design development and to this day still epitomises all of the racing winning and wholesome sea keeping abilities of Arch Logans designs.
Tawera is immaculate and has been extensively restored and is now considered one of the finest examples of the a keeler of the pre-WWII era.
Her recent restoration was to the highest specification which includes the building of a new spruce mast to the original specs, new Volvo Penta engine, and redevelopment of the saloon, galley, heads and fore cabin. A new wooden spinnaker pole and wooden turning blocks on deck as well as an all new sail wardrobe consisting of Mainsail, #1, #2 genoas, asymmetric and conventional spinnakers.
