Long White Cloud

45' Herreshoff 1996

Long White Cloud's only existence was a Kauri hull when Laurence Giles was asked to help finish her in 1992. It took 2½ years to complete her using the finest of timbers and materials. She was launched in Auckland in 1996 and went on to take her proud owners cruising to many exotic places around the world, including Thailand, the Maldives, Seychelles, Africa and Brazil.

"Long White Cloud" named in the honor of New Zealand, "Aotearoa", the Land of the Long White Cloud.
