D'Vara *

Dream of Arden Design : Published 1945 


Road to the Sea, SE Bradfield

D'Vara* not heard of since 1970s
Official Number : 196895 : Registered Freemantle, Australia.
The image above is a scan I've taken of the book, Road to the Sea. I have this book which contains several Black and White photographs of D'Vara* . Published in 1964, it tells the story of her construction in the Bradfield's back yard and subsequent voyage from Australia to England. Unfortunately, after 1964, not much seems to be known about D'Vara*, other than a report that she was back in Australian waters, still owned by the Bradfields, in the early 1970s.
Thus D'Vara* is one of our pink star Harrison Butlers.
