Remarks
Tasmanian classic with an interesting history (see PDF attachment). Recent work on Brooke has resulted in a very strong and sound hull and reliable engine. Now it's up to a new owner to finish the fitout to suit. With her large, family-friendly cockpit and comfortable wheelhouse, she has years of safe and enjoyable cruising ahead and would make a great candidate for the next Australian Wooden Boat Festival.
