'Puttwater' is by far the loveliest little cabin cruiser we have seen in a while.
Affectionately known as 'Putt Putts' for the gentle putting sound their little inboard diesel make while running these charming little launches have become an institution in themselves. Built along the lines of the lobster boats of lore they continue to be built as gentleman's launches the whole family will cherish.
Stable, solidly built, with a 2'7" draft enabling you to come close to shore for a picnic lunch, they are designed for lazy afternoons cruising along the harbors and waterways with family and friends. The cockpit can easily accommodate 8 people, while the half cabin is wide and deep enough to retreat to if the weather turns to rain or if somebody needs a nap.
'Puttwater' was built on commission by Billy Fisher in 1997 and as such is one of the junior Putt Putts. Having a launch of this quality built today by shipwrights of the expertise of Billy Fisher would probably set you back around $80,000.
This pretty little launch has just come out of the shipyard after two years of progressive make-over. Although she has always been looked after by her two successive owners, she was in need of a fresh coat of paint and a few repairs when purchased three years ago by her current owner.
No expenses were spared in what they still affectionately call 'Puttwater' their dream boat. The launch's bottom was stripped and antifouled, the topsides were completely repainted with two-pack polyurethane over a high build epoxy primer, as were her decks and cabin top. All the bright-works were fully sanded and re-varnished (also professionally), the prop shaft bearing was replaced with a new one, as were the rudder bearings, new anchor and navigation lights were fitted, a new battery was installed and the engine was fully serviced. (Again recently in 11.13)
This vessel is free of rot or worms and is ready to enjoy (and turn a few heads at the Timber boat show).
