Description: Herreshoff Mobjack 46 Encumbrance Check?
Gahleru was built circa 1948 by Bob Gordon in Sydney. Her early years ('51-'62) were spent as a CSIRO research vessel out of Thursday Is. The hull is built from 1 1/2'' spotted gum and is in original immaculate condition. A true reminder of how timber boats were once built. Gahleru is a dry yacht and the current owners have lovingly restored her. She has been upgrades with all the latest technology and is ready to go anywhere. The owners planned to travel extensively and therefore she comes with too many spare parts to list here. New missen included. Will be fitted by August 2016. Paid for and supplied by Whale Spars
