Wairakei II after the war had several owners, she was always well maintained. She came to us in 2012 after a change of ownership for maintenance. Discussions soon started about re-designing her interior which was cramped for what is a rather large vessel. Working alongside Heather Dennett Interiors a full refit of her forward end took place in the following winter 2013/14
