A Photo & Discussion Forum for Wharram Design Enthusiasts
Hei Matau is for sale. I am selling because my crew has mutinied over the lack of a "proper" head and galley. I personally love the spartan accommodations of the Tiki 26, but sailing without my crew is too lonely. I am also starting a business, and do not anticipate having the time to sail her as often as she deserves. She is located in Bennington, VT. The price is $15,000 USD and is a deal, so please only serious offers. She is in great shape and ready to sail on your next epic adventure. Did I mention that she did 14.7 knots one glorious day between Padanarum and Cuttyhunk?
Please see my page for some photos. Others upon request.

I'd be happy to show you the Hei Matau on a weekend. Where are you located?
I'm quite interested in this boat and wonder if you have any interior picture as well?
Is the boat in the water at the moment or is it on the trailer? How large a vehicle do you use to trailer this?
I live in Nova Scotia and could drive up to Vt to see it with in a day.
Do you have a number I can call to discuss or can I provide you an E-mail to take it off the forum
There are some interior photos of the port cabin on the "blog" section of my page on this site. I can send you more if you wish. The boat is on her trailer currently. Boat and trailer weigh about 2,000 pounds, and I have no problems towing it with my Subaru Outback, 2.4L 4 cylinder.
You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
