Motor yacht PRINCESS ILUKA - Ray Kemp, Woodridge, Tasmania
Yacht Charter Description
Luxury Motor yacht PRINCESS ILUKA (ex Iluka) is 34,50m (113' 2") in length. The yacht was originally constructed by Ray Kemp in Tasmania in 1979 however Princess Iluka has undergone an extensive refit. She can accommodate 10 guests in 3 double, 1 twin and 1 bunk cabin.
The timber used in PRINCESS ILUKA’s construction included Tasmanian oak and Huon pine. The timbers were logged and milled around 1964 in the Gordon River region in the south west wilderness of Tasmania. This area is renowned for its unique huon pines, which was the most sought after boat building material, mainly due to its resistance to rot and borers. The huon pine used for Iluka's hull was over 750 years old and once harvested, was left to cure for two years before building could commence. The timber which forms the keel is one continuous piece of spotted gum which took three weeks to extract from the forest. A construction of this type would not be possible today as the timber is now a protected.
Princess Iluka has a classic clipper bow which forms the foundation of the vessel. PRINCESS ILUKA’s refit was undertaken in Australia and her hull timbers were stripped bare to make way for her transformation. The superstructure was remodelled and rebuilt and her hull was lengthened to include a new transom. The interior transformation included the latest technology in engineering, electrical and plumbing systems, as well as state of the art electronics. The super yachts owners have been sympathetic to the yacht's heritage and history and there is a distinctly Australian flavour throughout the interior.
