“These yachts are among the best-designed and best-built yachts in the world of their time and are part of the superb heritage of fine yachts that exist in NZ, to the envy and admiration of the rest of the world”
This weekend marks the Auckland Anniversary Regatta, one of the biggest maritime events of the season. We’re excited about seeing some of the Classic Logan designed & built yachts out in action on the water. Each of the boats have an amazing history and are testament to the quality craftsmanship installed by the Logan family and owners who have meticulously restored them.
In 1904 Charles Horton of the New Zealand Herald asked Logan Bros to build for him the cruiser/racer Ariki. She proved to be the fastest yacht in Auckland for the next 34 years. One of Arch Logan’s larger yachts, she is regarded as one of the Logan’s most powerful racing yachts & continues to be a crowd pleaser under her original tall gaff rig.
“ -she is the paramount example of Arch Logan’s design skills and feel for aesthetics. The beauty of her shape and proportions is obvious to seafarers and landsmen alike. Few yachts have entered into the psyche of Aucklanders so deeply. She was, and remains, the ultimate statement of the Logan ethos, an uncompromising pursuit of the ultimate in quality” Exert from The Logans – New Zealand’s greatest boat building family”
