Australian Sloop Spotted
The HBA has recently learnt much about Isabella, an Australian built Harrison Butler to the Omega design. Our knowledge was boosted first by Rob Lovelace who sent in a few derails and a couple of photographs. We then heard from the Hart family following the death of custodian Frank Hart. A year on, following a restoration by the Hart family, Isabella is up for sale. Follow the links below to learn much more about this boat and to see many more photographs of her as she is now.
