25ft Couta Boat "Kareelah"



For sale my couta boat the 'Kareelah" aboriginal word for southern wind.

She is a 25ft gaff rigged couta boat , the last boat built by Neil and Ken Lacco at Newhaven in 1988.

She has a  2GM20hp yanmar that has only done 400 hrs.

She has a jib and mainsail (made by Peter Green sails (maron color)) and also a storm jib.

Ken Lacco built this boat out of his head, without plans, as he had built this one before and said "yes she was a brilliant little sailer".

This boat speaks for herself in her grace and beauty and "I will not sell this boat to someone who I do not believe will care for her".

She really is the prettiest girl on the river.

She has a Merbu hull and a Kauri deck and drop keel.

On board is a navman gps unit, auto pilot, depth sounder, wash down hose unit.



Tim Phillips' comment: "This boat would be ideal boat for sailing in division 2, with her you will get a wonderful Ken Lacco legacy (my hero and teacher)".
