History

Huia is currently being restored by her new owners.  Track her fascinating progress on their website.

"I have known this boat since 1965, in fact have sailed her in the 60's many times, with HUIA and Matalita (Identical H28s) we did a couple of Queenscliff - Devonport yacht races.  I can say with certainty that HUIA is one of the best H28's I've ever been in and represents an ideal restoration project.  Currently she is like a time-warp, ie: has been well maintained to original condition." - Tim Phillips - Wooden Boat Shop
