Paramatta is a sheltie boat, used in the Northern Islands for fishing, leisure and island transport,  which the owner wanted repaired and re-conditioned.  This was carried out by our volunteers, and Paramatta was used in the Tall Ships 2018 event as a base for the tightrope walker who performed in the big ‘Waterfall of Fire’ display at the end of the event.
She shares her name with the largest wooden-built ship built in Sunderland, which was launched by James Laing at Deptford on May 29, 1866.

Sadly, the owner has now died, but the family are in the process of passing ownership over to us and we will be aiming to get her back in the water and in use again soon.
