Tuarangi is a William Atkin designed "Ingrid". Built in Totara on Australian hardwood by the legendary Jack Crooks in Invercargill in 1962. She became the first South Island built boat to sail around the world. In the mid 1990's she was given a no-expense-spared refit that laid the foundation for a timeless quality yacht. The current owners have owned her for 14 years and sailed over 15000 NM, including a year-long cruise to Vanuatu, New Caledonia and the 2015 Wooden Boat Festival in Hobart. Her cutter ketch rig makes for easy sail handling and plenty of sailing options and with her nearly new genoa she has impressed many with her performance in light winds. William Atkin described her as "The kind of boat that behaves in rough water. She can be depended upon to sail herself. She is ableness personified. And equal to any situation". Her wide, spacious teak decks allow easy and safe movement onboard, in any conditions. Below decks, beautifully crafted Kauri and Afromorsia woodwork feature throughout. In the sleeping area there is a double and a single berth, with an additional 3 berths in the saloon. Spacious galley with large fridge and freezer. A woodburning stove adds warmth for winter sailing. The back of one of the saloon seats swings out to give a comfortable, forward facing navigation area. Good sized heads with basin and holding tank. Ample stowage options throughout the boat, cater for longer voyages.
