HUGE PRICE REDUCTION MUST SELL 'Ti-Hani' is a beautiful timber yacht in very good condition Designed and Built by Author Bishop in 1951. This boat is the Voyager a production boat of its day with the first one launched in 1939 a fleet built for the navy. One of her sister ships is currently located at the maritime museum in WA. Author built 3 boats in 1951 that I am aware of, built to race in the Fremantle to Busselton yacht race where the design proved to be very competitive. She is a classic Yacht with all the charm of boats built in the day boasts a traditional fit out although in recent years she was professionally re decked giving her an new lease of life making her a dry boat. The engine has just had a complete overhaul including water pump replacement, head gasket, pistons, new exhaust exchange and general tidy up. The UV strip on the Jib has been replaced and she has undergone a general tidy up and been enjoyed by her current owners. I love this boat but don't have the time to maintain her please help me find her a good home she is a beautiful boat.
