Beautiful Classic Trawler
This beautiful trawler conversion is well worth a look.
Santa Maria was built in 1955 and was used for fishing Hapuka and Crayfish in Cook Strait. Subsequently she has worked in various roles all over New Zealand. She is very well maintained by her current owners, and she is a real credit to them. This is one of New Zealand’s classic icons, and to top this off, she is a fantastic seagoing vessel.
Santa Maria was professionally converted approximately 20 years ago, and to this day, she is a much-admired piece of New Zealand’s Maritime History. She was last antifouled in November 2022.
Her aft cockpit area is huge, and with Walk-around decks it makes her a dream boat to be aboard.
Powered by the Rolls Royce of Diesel engines, a 127hp Gardiner, she cruises easily at 8knots. Approx 6ltrs/Hour
