Originally built 79 years ago of Huon pine, the gaff-rigged Maluka was lovingly rebuilt by Sean Langman, better known for his highspeed ocean racers Grundig and AAPT.  He sailed Maluka in the 2006 Rolex Sydney Hobart and was the first boat under 9.5m LOA to finish.  In fact, she was the smallest boat to compete, placing 8th overall in the IRC category.  While she carries a Sydney Amateur Sailing Club sail number, Maluka of Kermandie is listed as representing the Port Huon Yacht Club in southern Tasmania where Sean has extended his business interests.
