44 Napoleon Street, Battery Point TAS

Astrolabe

In  1973 Muir’s Boatyard launched the 31ft Lidgarde-design, cold moulded sloop Astrolabe for Bob Gear, of Hobart.

 

After six years in Papua New Guinea in the hands of a second owner, she returned to Hobart “still looking as good as new,” and was purchased by Royal Yacht Club of Tasmania member Geoff Burrows. 

 

When she was under construction, Bob Gear and his crew spent many weekends and nights working on her.
