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)".
