The SV Luckyfish.
Dan and his mate Adrian originally planned to build two Tiki 38’s together, but Adrian couldn’t wait so bought the Tiki 38 Two Ticks instead. In 2008 Adrian did a complete refit of Two Ticks and Dan gained valuable experience that would be useful later when he started his own. The first ideas for the Luckyfish pod design and layout originated from Two Ticks rebuild. Adrian sailed his boat out to New Zealand and Dan started building in 2009. In Dan’s own words “I was quite clear on what I wanted and believe she is the best set up Tiki 38. Yes, you can change a Wharram design but I am not a fan of that. Get a different boat”.
Note, we now use and supply similar quality okoume marine ply and from Spain.
