Search for Classic Vessels

This is a growing database of classic vessels (pre 1940) with a significant connection to the region. Information comes from primary sources (mostly the Evening Post and NZ Yachtsman), and secondary sources (the more reliable being the writings of Harold Kidd, Robin Elliott and David Pardon). Where sources conflict, primary sources are generally given precedence. Bruce Askew's first notes on the database can be viewed here.
