WAN FU was custom built in 1977 in Melbourne Australia for a Navy Commander.
Lowered from 199k to only $159,900 now (march 2012).
She has a plated steel hull, steel deck and house, and is considered an Offshore Chinese Junk because her masts are stayed. Her design is an adaptation of a Thomas Colvin designed Chinese Junk.
