A Stir Ven fleet in Australia ?

Mike Randall Stir Ven, Vikki Bee
Stir Ven, this 22' fast classic dayboat, is more and more successful out of his mother country, France. Two Stir Ven have already been built in Australia and met recently during the Australian Wooden Boat Festival in Hobart, Tasmania. They did some great sailing together among the islands in the d'Entrecasteaux Channel. A beautiful inlet discovered by the French admiral Antoine Bruny d'Entrecateaux in April 1792 with both vessels La Recherche and l'EspĂ©rance.
But let's come back to our small boats. Stir Ven 35 was built near Melbourne by Mike Randall who has an interesting blog. Stir Ven 42 was built by Stan Robert, who live in Tasmania. An other Stir Ven is under construction by a professional boat-builder, Duckflatwoodenboat, near Adelaide, South Australia.
