12' Fazackerley King Billy Clinker dingy

by Stew Edwards
(Tasmania Australia)

"little Chook" his beautiful 12' Reg Fazackerley built clinker dinghy.

Denman Marine restored this boat for the current owner a few years back and she is a delightful fishing/pleasure dinghy.

  • She is planked in king billy pine on Huon ribs with a NZ
    Kauri transom.  

  • She has a refurbished reliable 4hp seagull outboard. During
    her restoration all paint and putty was removed, a new transom frame, 7
    new ribs and a couple of plank splits were repaired.

  • The boat has been re-painted and the bright work has been
    oiled for lower maintenance.  

  • There is a wonderful age patina where she is finished
    bright and the rear Huon thwart is just stunning.  

  • She now has a new lease on life for another 20+ years.

To build a boat such as this today and fit it out with what it is
offered with would cost in excess of $22,000.

  • This boat is offered with a registered trailer, 4 HP
    Seagull outboard, safety gear for sheltered waters, oars &
    rowlocks plus anchor, chain and rope.

  • A fire extinguisher is fitted for safety when the engine is
    in use and there are two rope fenders in keeping with the boats

  • The boat also has a tailor made canvas cover made by a
    local sail maker.

This magnificent piece of
Tasmanian maritime history is available for purchase at $12,000
