Aramoana means “pathway of the ocean”.

Built for Gordon Pollard of Henderson & Pollard Timber merchants.  In 1989 she was given a major refit by Jim and Jenni McGlashan. They removed some of the changes that had been made over the years and restored her to her original condition.


She is now owned by Chris Gudgeon and is based in Auckland.
