Phil Smith, who recently sent us a fascinating report of his experiences sailing a converted airborne lifeboat, has written for us again. This time his story is about Spindrift, a fifer-style boat built from kauri in New Zealand. Eight years later my navigator and I found ourselves clambering over Spindrift’s gunwale, in Whangamata Harbour, 30 miles up the Coromandel Coast from Tauranga.
The biggest boats we’d ever owned till then had been a 23ft James Wharram Hinemoa, and a 23ft Uffa Fox airborne lifeboat. We bought Spindrift, fixed her up a bit, and motor-sailed home on a beam reach in 25 knots of south westerly. In the two and a half years we owned her we have clocked up nearly 150 engine hours, spent 34 nights on board, and taken her out an average of once a fortnight.
In a locker aft, the hydraulic steering ram can be disconnected and a tiller secured in a socket on the rudder post. From the cockpit, three big steps descend into a saloon with 6ft 3in headroom and accommodation for two or three, a wide berth to starboard and a galley to port. The Reids cruised Spindrift as far as Great Barrier Island and up and down the rugged Northland Coast for a number of years before embarking on another boatbuilding project.
Her next owner shortened the cabin, enlarging the cockpit, and built a one-ton ice hold and hydraulic line hauler for longlining and crayfishing. I am the oldest grandson of Willie Miller who was the manageing director at James N Miller and sons in St Monance, Fife, Scotland.


In 1964 he came out to NZ and stayed with us in Picton where he used our family boat called Quest. The first Fifer motor yacht was designed whilst my grand farther was in NZ by his nephew Jimmy Miller.

Our Faversham-based friend Alan Thorne can help with boatbuilding projects - constructing to plans in very tidy stitch-and-glue or more traditional techniques.
Creative HQ CE Stefan Korn says that one of the biggest obstacles for new startups is having to deal with finance, accounting and tax related work. The planters are available in a range of sizes, styles and choice of colours including white, black and dark green. Choose from The Henley Range or The Classic Range, with every PlanTub hand crafted to order using only premium grades of New Zealand macrocarpa timber and built to the highest cabinet making specifications.
Phil and partner Susie owned her for a while and, just as he did with airborne lifeboat, Phil makes this boat sound very desirable as well as interesting.
At first glance she looked odd: like a 42 footer with 15 feet sawn out of the middle and the ends stuck together. We covered 30 miles on the chart in five hours 11 minutes, which eradicated any doubts about her performance or capabilities. Most of our cruising consists of day trips around Tauranga Harbour, or out to sea: we are coastal sailors who plan never to lose sight of land. In 20 knot winds we would reef down, but no doubt a more adventurous type would carry full sail in 30 knots. On the wind she’ll steer herself long enough to use the head or galley, though extra attention is needed downwind.
Her builder, Collin Reid, did the job at her Waipapa Landing, near Kerikeri, in the Bay of Islands, the site of New Zealand’s pioneering settlement. The first boat was built on spec and sold at the London boat show where orders for eight more were placed.


It's clearly derived from some of the same general ideas and heritage as the Fifer yachts. Try scrolling down, clicking on the 'older posts' button at the bottom of this page - or try the search gadget! Finished in either natural stain or the highest quality exterior paint, and coated on the inside with a waterproof coating to allow direct planting, they provide lasting garden features for multiple environments, and add instant elegance to your entrance, patio, and garden. She had very high topsides, and a surprising amount of sheer put the stemhead almost 6ft above the waterline. He’d had her up on the hard for two years, installing the Sabb engine and a new electrical system installed, and refurbished her deep and cosy interior.
In the middle, a hatch lifts off to expose the engine room, including the 190kg motor, which gives hull speed at 1500 rpm, using around three litres an hour. The interior features golden varnished kauri and rimu timber, set against the white painted ribs and planking of the hull.
Then she was bought by three men in Tauranga who went voyaging and fishing around the Bay of Plenty. The price seemed steep, but she was professionally built of solid kauri, and looked like she might even have a pedigree. Two tons of lead run along the base of the keel, with a further 200kg of internal ballast in the bilge. Instead of swooping up the waves and banging into the troughs, Spindrift barges her way confidently through the seas, occasionally shouldering a big one, sending spray hissing overhead. The shell comprises inch-thick tanalised timber fastened by copper nails to steam-bent ribs of kowhai and tanekaha on 8in centres.
I'm sorry but to claim the vessel in NZ is a Fifer designed by some one else is totally false. She had a jaunty, naval appearance compared to the sleek and sinister cruiser-racers berthed around about.
