Wharram Oro - “Wharram Oro ”

Some projects take time. Years can elapse between the selection of a design and the wetting of hulls. Sometimes decades. This is a Custom Oro 46'. One of the oldest of Wharram's designs yet it was launched in 2011. She was many years in the making and went through a succession of builders' interpretations. Her rig is eclectic - almost Steampunk. Her tramps are only for daysailing. She wants a proper steering system. She will (always) need some refinishing. She is fairly bare bones but a classic. Further interpretation and effort are required before she lives up to her bluewater heritage. But the gruelling work is done. Years of effort have been expended. Refitting is months not years. 800 square feet, 3 cabins, a galley, head, flexi-space, a pilothouse, and a manageable ketch rig invite your finishing touches.

Matthew knows these boats well, this might be an opportunity for someone.
