Can anyone help to identify this vessel. I thought it was Young Endeavour, on slip at Kwinana, Western Australia in 1999. But appears I thought wrong. Young Endeavour only has 2 masts. Any assistance greatly appreciated
The Leeuwin is a 3-masted 1850 style barquentine, 55 meters long and weighing 300 tons. She has a permanent crew of 6, plus 7 experienced volunteer crew, and carries up to 40 participants. She is owned by a non-profit, charitable trust based in Freemantle, W Australia.
The yard you pictured her is at Coogie, which is halfway Fremantle and Kwinana, it is the largest shipyard, both for dockings and new constructions in West Australia (ignoring the all alu hull yards), initially this yard started off by two Dutch brothers Verboon in the late 50's, but they later sold it to Tenix (first ASI = Australian Shipbuilding Industries).
I have been there hundred of times following projects.
