Goolara is the sister of Girralong and Goondaloo, three G class Pilot Vessels constructed between 1956-1958 on Goat Island by the Maritime Services Board (MSB) in NSW.  Originally designed and built by MSB, Goolara, initially an ex G class pilot cutter, has been transformed into a capable passage maker.  It served as a Pilot Cutter until 1979, showcasing the robust craftsmanship and enduring design principles implemented by the MSB.
