Description: Carvel Carvel Planked Cruiser
This stunning M. V. Flinders 40ft Carvel Planked Cruiser was constructed in 1939 to demanding government specifications. She was built in Melbourne by Botterill and Fraser, fabricated from 1,5" Oregon. She served in New Guinea and later as a pilot vessel in Sydney Harbour, a true testament of her sea worthy and tough hull.
Civil life saw her beautifully restored with a art -deco pilot house and an attached cabin. This is a lovely vessel in extremely good order featuring new up-graded electronics and an economical GM (4-71) diesel engine.

A little bit of history:
She was commissioned by the Army as a coastal surveillance vessel in Darwin during the war years, before returning to Port Philip Bay as a Pilot vessel for many years, then used by the ports and Harbours as a work boat on the Gippsland Lakes.
She was finally sold by the government to a private owner who converted it to a cruiser with the additional cabin Installed by a shipwright.
