Additional Description

Coracle Marine was formed by the Directors of JJ Richards, one of our largest private companies with great metal engineering facilities and expertise, to build fast and safe, offshore alloy boats.

Using top designers, well-qualified Marine Engineers and highly qualified Shipwrights they built several "show-boats" to test the premium-end of the market.? The result: potential volume is too small to warrant full-scale production.? Now this unique, superbly crafted (and possibly over-engineered) vessel is to be offered for Auction at Royal Queensland Yacht Squadron on 8th July 2006 at 10.00am.
