Dawn Wind of Kirribilli is such a charming fast cruiser, designed and built in Australia. She has remained in active use with all of her owners and has covered many thousands of sea miles. With a length of 33ft, Dawn Wind has the classic, elegant lines of a yacht designed in the 50s with the sea keeping credentials to go with it. Built with Oregon planking, spotted gum laminated frames and a teak deck. Dawn Wind has accommodation for four people, with a galley and heads, her interior is well thought out and finished using teak and ash trim. In current ownership since 2020 lots of upgrades and maintenance work has been undertaken which means that Dawn Wind is a turn key classic sailing boat. History Dawn Wind was designed by Len Randell, in Western Australia in the 1950s. Len is, without question, an extremely important part of the Australian Maritime History as he was one of the first people to be fully qualified as a navel architect in Western Australia and practised full time. Dawn Wind was built in 1965 by brothers Les and Barry Steel, who had a small yard in Lake Macquarie NSW, it was rare for a design by Len to be built outside of Western Australia, but the brothers built an extremely fast and elegant sailing yacht, which did Len proud. Launched in October 1965 for Milas and Marjorie Sutton on the Lake Macquire, it is understood they entered Dawn Wind into a number of races in the early 1970s where which they picked up many 1st places. During November 1976 Dawn Wind found her next custodians, JF & JM Bottomley, who entered Dawn Wind on the small ships registry at the Sydney Customs House. The Bottomley’s continued to race Dawn Wind around Sydney Harbour and she continued to prove herself with more race wins, including winning the RSYS Extras race in 1978. She was then sold in February 1985 to JR Devers who registered the boat with the Customs Department in Brisbane. This ownership was short lived, lasting just 1 year. Dawn Wind was then sold to the Kelman Family. 1986 saw a new, and certainly exciting, chapter for Dawn Wind. James Kelman sailed the boat back to England using the Western route via the Suez Canal to the Mediterranean and eventually to England. Once in the UK, the Kelman family registered Dawn Wind on the British Registry of Ships. She remained in the Kelman family for the next 21 years before finding her current owner in 2007. 2007 until present the current owner has fulfilled a sailing dream and extensively cruised Dawn Wind in North Sea, English Channel, Mediterranean. She is now residing in Corfu.
