Commissioned in 1955 by Harry Brady of the Brady Ceiling Company, the 20 tonne, 12 metre vessel was built to a one-off Randell design, by two English shipwrights.
She is named after Mr Brady's two granddaughters Karen and Sue. The Karen Sue is powered by two Yanmar diesel engines of 100hp each and cruises at a speed of 7-8 knots. All of the decks, superstructure and inside of the cabin are made of teak and the cabin areas are finished off with carpeting and soft timeless velour upholstered seating.
The spacious galley has all the facilities to serve food and beverages by your own personal butler. The Karen Sue is operated by experienced staffs who understand 'first class' service.
The Skipper has many years of experience on the Swan River and our host is at your service throughout your trip. The Karen Sue, truly a beautiful, historic boat in Western Australia has travelled the Swan River for 50 years. It has established its presence in the Perth boating community in celebrating Engagements, Weddings with great memories up and down the river system over many years.
She passed her last Survey in 2018 with flying colours and still has so much to offer to her new owner. It comes with a Liquor Licence, Swan River to Fishing Boat Harbour Survey plus licence to pick up and drop off in Nedlands.
Recently out of water in December '2019 for general service and maintenance.
