Woollacott Ladybird 34 - Manu Iti - SOLD


Manu Iti is a lovely traditional ketch of 34' on deck and 43' LOA now for sale exclusively with YOTI in Tasmania.

This yacht has been well maintained by all her owners since launching in 1970 in Auckland. Manu iti is of the Ladybird design from Bert Woollacott and is constructed using NZ Kauri Pine strip planking for her hull and epoxy dynal over ply for her decks.

Manu Iti has Oregon spars and has recently been slipped and painted (topsides, decks and antifouled). The Yanmar fresh water-cooled 30 hp has just been serviced and the heat exchanger rebuilt. The sails are all in good condition with the headsail being as new with little use. A rare opportunity to own an elegant, traditional timber ketch.

Available to inspect now on the jetty at our office in Lindisfarne Bay, Hobart. Contact Danny Ryan for further details.
