Australian built classic from the worlds' most renown designer

Caraid is an exceptionally crafted classic yacht with impeccable pedigree. Lovingly restored and maintained, this 1928 Australian built yacht was designed by William Fife and built by Morrison and Sinclair in Sydney.

The spectacular interior has inlaid contrasting timbers of cedar, teak, silver ash and blackwood, which helped earn Caraid the peoples choice award for the best looking boat at the inaugural Wooden boat festival. In fact, Caraid has won at the wooden boat festival 3 times.

She comes with an original leather bound logbook with gold embossed pages that has been signed by dignitaries, dated as far back as 1930’s

It is impossible to describe this boat with words or pictures. She really must be seen and experienced. The current owner fell in love with her when he was just 12, eventually buying her later in life and fully restoring her. She will be a lifelong passion for whoever becomes the next custodian
