Century old New Zealand mullet boat for sale

Niad New Zealand mullet boat for sale

Paul Mullings found this nicely restored sweet little New Zealand mullet boat for sale on an auction website. Made from kauri, it dates back to the beginning of the 20th century, has a centreboard and an overhauled Watermota engine with a feathering prop. The auction ends on the 26th, if you’re down there and in the market for something that’s a small but perfectly formed piece of sailing history…

Thanks Paul!
