On 5 November 1898, the 35ft cutter Mawhiti was launched in Wellington, New Zealand.

This followed several years of design and construction by, amongst  several others, my grandfather, William Moore.

In 1907-08 she was shipped to Sydney, Australia, where she has sailed succesfully for many years.

These pages are intended to record what is known about her history, and to help seek further information about her history, current whereabouts, or fate. These pages will be updated as more information is found.
