The purchaser should confirm details of concern to them by survey or engineers inspection. The purchaser should also ensure that the purchase contract properly reflects their concerns and specifies details on which they wish to rely. Brokers comments testimony to the longevity of norwegian design, construction, and the superb qualities of nz kauri, totara with copper and bronze fastenings, ranui has had just 4 owners (including nz government, a fishing company and the current owner) in a long and illustrious life. Her scantlings are heavy, designed for and operated in nz stormy southern ocean waters including the notorious foveaux strait. As a spy ship during world war 2 throughout the pacific and later in a conversion to an oyster boat and then later reconverted as an expedition ship she has proven her design and husky credentials. An extremely safe sturdy and sea kindly vessel with a 3000 mile range under power she presents as an exceptional vessel capable of short handed sailing to far off exotic locations. History designed and built in port pegasus, stewart island in 1936 by whaling captain korinius larsen as an auxiliary schooner to transport the owner's family from stewart island to bluff harbour crossing foveaux strait, she was not long launched when world war ii started and the nz government commissioned her as a camouflaged spy ship cruising the stormy southern ocean and later the pacific from solomons, tarawa, to fji and cook islands. Here after the war and a massive nz navy dockyard refit she was re commissioned as the vice regal yacht for new zealand in the pacific. For a time she was then the royal yacht for queen salote of tonga. Her brass, red carpet and mahogany was removed in the early 60s as she became the flagship for otakau fisheries, for whom she dredged for oysters and lobster for 30 years until the bonemia parasite shut that industry down. Bought by her current owner, a 3 year refit followed - with reconversion into a ketch rigged expedition and charter vessel. Her maiden voyage was the grade 3 oceanic search of the sub antarctic in 1999 for lost yachtsman and well known birdwatcher gerry clark and his famous yacht totorore. In 2010, after a new rig and hull refit she completed a 10,000 mile voyage throughout the pacific as support vessel for a fleet of 5 traditional waka. Her present owner has completed several voyages from the sub antarctic to the pacific completing an estimated 60,000 miles. Her standard of maintenance has always exceeded any survey requirements and she currently holds category 1 offshore certificate.
