Ted Ashby is a ketch-rigged deck scow, typical of the fleet of scows that once operated in northern New Zealand waters. Scows were flat-bottomed, centreboard vessels, most of which carried their cargo on deck. They were ideal for working estuaries and shallow harbours, and they carried logs, firewood, sand and shingle, machinery and stock. A few of the larger scows carried timber to Australia and America.
Ted Ashby sails at 11:30am and 1:30pm for one hour every Tuesday - Sunday. This leisurely sail is the perfect way to see Auckland's beautiful skyline.
All sailing tickets include entry the museum galleries.
