Jessie Logan by Jim Bolland

Robert Logan, the founder of the famous Logan dynasty of yacht designers and builders, had arrived in Auckland in 1874 from the Clyde, Ireland, as a highly experienced yacht and boat builder with his wife and young family.  Within five years he had set up on his own with a yard on the waterfront at Devonport close to what was then called the Flagstaff Wharf.

Logan’s sons were excellent craftsmen and sportsmen and all eventually worked in the business known as Logan Bros which produced the finest yachts of its time in the southern hemisphere and whose yachts dominated the racing in, not only New Zealand, but also Australia and South Africa.
