HUON PINE CUSTOM MADE TIMBER YACHT

LAUREN KRYSSARE MID-CENTURY MODERN KETCH 9.6M HUON PINE

Swedish Sleek 30 year-old ketch custom designed by renowned Swedish boat designer Arvid Laurin and built by local shipwrights expressly for Australian sheltered and off-shore cruising conditions

This exceptional boat was constructed from Huon Pine and various supporting timbers and has been fastidiously maintained to this day

Asterisk was commissioned for use by a former ocean racer and his family, being completed for launch on Pittwater, NSW in 1990

The boat won it’s inaugural race with the Wooden Boat Association, after which she was given a handicap to ensure the victory would never be repeated! Most of Asterisk’s sailing took place in and around Pittwater, including the Hawkesbury, and occasionally down to Sydney Harbour (Port Jackson)

A regular feature at wooden boat festivals, the ketch has also been the subject of a number of boating magazine articles in Australia and overseas

The layout of the boat facilitates spirited yet comfortable sailing in a range of weather conditions along with genuine amenity above and below for multi-day trips with evenings at berth or on moorings. Asterisk sails well with just two people on board, and can extent to host up to 5 people (even 6, if some are little) in bunks overnight

Below deck the interior includes:

  • Beautiful Mahogany cabinetry and a living set-up that promotes a comfortable cruising lifestyle 
  • Galley kitchen containing stove and twin sinks, stowable dining table, cooling box, ample storage and a discrete ‘head’

The boat features:

  • Circular profile Finnish fiberglass spars
  • Custom-made stainless fittings topside
  • Barlow winches
  • Elegant, functional details throughout
  • Motor power comes from a Volvo Penta three cylinder motor – rebuilt 2005

The sail kit includes:

  • Six primaries for mizzen, main and fore
  • Has provision for the addition of spinnaker in future if needed

The fastidious nature of the owner is seen in the Asterisk’s high-end build, materials, and maintenance – from bow to transom, mast tips to keel and everything in between

Overall, Asterisk is a boat centred upon classic 1950s Scandinavian design but with a much new build date than most of its ilk

No immediate work is required – just hoist and sail
