Lotus' could be described as an absolute 'barn find'. Ordered from the factory and delivered in 1982 she still is under the care of her original owner who has been loathe to put any screws into the beautiful timber interior so she still looks like the day she was delivered. The original cushions show no water marks or stains. Chain plates are shiny stainless and the port lights are clear. The 20 HP Yanmar has been lovingly managed and maintained and performs admirably. An Alan Wright design that is fast and seaworthy and with a quality New Zealand build. Step back in time to when boats were made by craftsmen with the best materials available but before electronics took over!
