Anahata (formerly Sea Mist) arrived at Paynesville in 2000 from Cottage Point Sydney in a moderately dilapidated condition. She boasts a design typical of the art-deco age - raised foredeck, low swept back lines, perfect balance of paintwork and brightwork. All window jambs and bulkheads angle aft several degrees making for intricate internal cabinetry requirements. The foreward hatch comprises a very fine herringbone patterned opaque glass construction. Near vertical prow and French doors leading into the cabin add to her period design. The builder, Williams of Drummoyne, was purportedly an apprentice to the Halvorsen family of boat-builders, hence the similarity in design and features. Twenty years of slow and steady restoration has returned her to the art-deco magnificence that stands her so definitively proud, and apart. Sleek and nimble, she presents as a greyhound of the Lakes and true testament of the 1930's boat-building era in Australia.
