Salthouse sheds have been a hive of activity

Summer has passed with a hiss and a roar and winter is beginning to show signs of creeping in.

All the while the Salthouse sheds have been a hive of activity.  
Luna Rosa had their 1200hp Catalyst45 launched just on Christmas and another has since been launched and shipped for her owners off to San Fran last week, ready to be part of the action at the forthcoming Americas Cup.
This has made space for the next Catalyst45 to begin - this one destined for offshore waters also.  
This spectacular new Melvin&Morelli design has certainly managed to catch the attention of a few adventurous boaties and we continue to here nothing but impressive feedback on performance.

The Southstar37 launched at Christmas has been out on the Auckland Harbour showing her wares and impressing her new owners. (we have a following story on this particular boat so be sure to check back) She will have another stable mate before too long with number six of the popular design following hot on her tail.  This particular Southstar37 will be powered by a 400hp Volvo with stern-leg.

Our affectionately named 'Vaka Land' (number 1 shed), has so far this year been the site of several refits for the original Vakas that have returned after many thousands of miles traveled between New Zealand, America and the Pacific Nations, for a well earned lick and a polish! We continue to progress on the construction of another Vaka due for launch later this year.

Meanwhile, we'll enjoy the last few rays of summer and rather than hibernate for winter, we look forward to a few good months of progress in the sheds.
