We are the third owners, originally named Tregillis II, purchased from the original owners by John Marshall 11 years ago, and sailed from Keri Keri in the Bay of Islands NZ via Lord Howe Island.
Built in Wellington, New Zealand and launched in 1990. A custom built soft chined steel yacht design by Denis Ganley (aka ‘The man of Steel’), a highly regarded designer of primarily steel boats.
Overall length of 13.4’ (length on deck of 12.8’), beam of 3.7m and draft of 2.0m, Lokate was our preferred choice for offshore cruising (the east coast), a stable and strong vessel with a functional layout with room for custom improvements.
Mechanical propulsion is a Ford Lehman 80hp marinised diesel engine, coupled to a Borg Warner velvet drive gearbox. Purchased non running, but after many days and dollars, Lokate is running and we have enjoy 2 brief but successful sea trials.
The interior is NZ Rimu & Oak, Teak floor panels.
Would like to thanks RMYS for their support and welcoming us to the yacht squadron.
