DESIGN GALLERY - Sailing Yacht Oz Relaunched
"Oz," an 87' steel-hulled
ketch, was designed by Don Brooks and built New Zealand
in the early '80s. We joined Oz as crew for the third
owner who purchased her in September 1998.
Extensive rust in her steel hull led to the complete
14-month rebuild which is illustrated here. We
oversaw over 40 subcontractors to complete this $2.7
million job in surprising time.
