The Register of Australian and New Zealand Ships and Boats


The Wooden Boat Guild of Tasmania is seeking information on the history of the historic yacht Terra Linna built in 1880. The Guild is restoring the yacht. The Guild was formed in 1993 and since then it has been able to educate, promote and provide an avenue for the passing on of skills associated with historic wooden boats. Members of the Wooden Boat Guild are drawn from a diverse spectrum of skills, from shipwrights to enthusiastic lovers of wooden boats.
