    But the question on every lip is ... Why?

    I think Pete just likes building boats.  He told me last year that he was very happy with Oryx but that he was interested in building at least one more boat.  It will be interesting to see what it turns out to be.

    And he has unfinished business in high latitudes.  But I think he may buy again, this time.

    So very tempting, nearly my perfect boat - just a bit too big, too expensive and the other side of the world!

    For a single-hander, the standard KD860  would be better suited for me - even then bigger than I need.  About double my budget, but then I am selling the house next year, maybe I will have a generous offer!   ..... And then a trip to NZ would be quite an adventure.

    So best of luck Pete - expect she will be sold well before I am ready.

    Pete has flown to Florida to take over a new-to-him boat and left Oryx here in New Zealand.  To me has fallen the task of trying to find a new owner for her.

    The price is reduced to GBP42,000, so come on Mark, what are you waiting for: you said Pelican isn't enough boat?  You can't say Oryx is too big - the hulls forward of the masts do nothing apart from provide buoyancy!

    Full details can be found by clicking here and pasting in the Dropbox details.  The phone number is no longer live, but my phone number is available to members in my Profile.  However, emails for text would be preferred.

    Non members would probably find it easier to contact me initially via chairman@junkrigassociation.org, after which we will use my normal email address.

    I will not respond to anonymous comments or questions.

    Still have a house to sell, so not ready to jump just yet.  Best of luck in finding a lucky new owner.

    What is Pete’s next project? 

    Cheers Mark
