Taihoa

Taihoa is a wooden double ender built in 1947. She looks like a flush deck variation of an Ingrid, designed by George Band. She is 37'10" on deck, but is 6 inches narrower at 11 feet. The reduced beam reflected at a little under 13 tons.

In 2007, she won the Best Live Aboard Award at the Victoria Classic Boat Festival.

Taihoa is a Maori word meaning "wait a minute".
