Yacht: Rawene

Submit Information on this Yacht


The last large yacht built by the Logans, ‘Rawene’, was owned and sailed by Alf Gifford and subsequently his son Jack, both of whom were skilled yachtsman. She became the darling of the local Auckland fleet, winning many races and trophies. She was maintained impeccably by the Giffords.

‘Rawene’ has been taken to her authentic restoration by her current owner Robert Brooke. She is completely original and has avoided modifications and improvements suffered by so many other classics.
