History

Likely to have been built at Hayes Yard, Careening Cove, Sydney.

Transported to Sorrento in December 2004.

Re-ribbed and restored as bermudan cutter rig at Wooden Boat Shop during 2005.

Re-launched March 2006.

Charlie Peel designed and built many couta boats in the early 20 century before moving to Sydney in the 1920s.

Torea has much of the couta boat heritage in her design with 3' bowsprit, inclined wine-glass transom and a full length wooden keel drawing 1' more than a couta boat.

She has fine lines and is very similar to Charlie Peel's Hoana which spent 3 years cruising around the world in the 1960s out fo Sydney.

Torea is often mistaken for a couta boat as she sails in southern Port Phillip Bay.
