New Keelers


Three years of spare-time work on the 31ft keeler "Delight" ended for Rod Parlane, of Mapua, last month when the yacht was launched at Port Nelson. The vessel is Brooks designed and features a retrousse stern. It sleeps 4 and will be used for New Zealand cruising That's it above, and above right are owner Rod Parlane and son Martyn.


Peter Meffan is hard at work on his new 38ft Laurent-Giles keeler, an ocean-racer design. He hopes to have it finished in another year. He's been working on it 18 months now.
