NZ Antique & Classic Boat Show, Lake Rotoiti, Nelson Lakes National Park, March 4 & 5, Results

An immaculate wooden clinker runabout built by Jim Beattie and restored in 2010 won the Jens Hansen Cup for the Best Vessel Overall at this year’s NZ Antique & Classic Boat Show held at Lake Rotoiti in the Nelson Lakes National Park over the weekend (March 4 & 5 2018).

Beattieful is named for the original builder, and is owned by Graeme Dutch of Porirua who says it was used in the Pelorus Sound from 1961-2002, in Kaiapoi from 2002-07, and is currently homed in Picton. The 16 foot boat is powered by a 55 Hp Evinrude outboard. She is a veteran of the Nelson boat show and won the Mathieson-Jeffcott trophy for the Best Motor Powered Craft in 2010.

Judges spokesman Ben Cox said Beattieful stood out for authenticity: “The attention to detail, the standard of the finish and touches like the deck hatch and little table in the cockpit really impressed us.”

Cox said the overall standard at the show was very high, representing a love of boats ‘from the backyard builder to wealthy enthusiasts with impeccable imported boats’.
