Nerissa 36 is a 6 berth Bermudan sloop rigged fin keeled Nerissa Class designed in New Zealand by Alan Wright and built in 1975 in Auckland, New Zealand. She is built of double diagonal heart Kauri (now a protected species) using excellent quality materials. She has rounded hull form with traditional lines and relatively long overhangs. Aft, there is a large comfortable cockpit with good seating. The underwater fin and skeg profile is surprisingly modern allowing the vessel a good turn of speed.

These boats are very popular in New Zealand and Australia, because they are not as well know here, Autumn Leaves is excellent value for money. She has been well looked after, particularly in the saloon. She is surprisingly spacious inside with good headroom. Her rigging has just been replaced, her engine serviced and she is also newly anti-fouled.(March 2016)
