Maka Maile was built by Sam Ford at Ellerslie in 1937 for R.E. Farrell of Titirangi and named after his father Percy’s boat built by James Clare in 1898 with which Farrell had dominated racing on the Manukau. She spent many happy years as a pleasure vessel for friends and family of the Farrells in and around the Auckland harbour.

She was owned by the Farrell family from 1937 until 2004 when she was purchased by her current owners.

After an extensive and complete refit, she was relaunched in 2013. Since then, she has been involved with the Classic Boat Association and Waitemata Woodies enjoying many outings including joining the Classic Launch Parade in Mahurangi every Auckland Anniversary.

The name Maka Maile is the boats original name and the new owners wanted to honour her history by keeping it the same. The word Maka Maile is the Hawaiian name for a fragrant vine which is traditionally used to make lei’s.

This is your chance to own a legacy example of New Zealand's maritime history. Don't hesitate, this vessel does not disappoint.
