History

The history of the Wilson family of Cygnet in southern Tasmania is well documented in the book “The story of the Shipwrights of Port Cygnet, Tasmania, and their boats 1863-1997”. The Wilson shipwrights built timber barges, tall ships, fishing boats, fine yachts and other vessels. The Cygnet was built at Port Cygnet in 1925 by 3rd generation shipwright Tas Wilson for his own use. In 1948 another well known Tasmanian shipwright Alf Cuthbertson converted the Cygnet (for its then owner) to more of a cruising yacht which included lengthening to 31 foot on deck plus bowsprit.
