Where Is Bernard Moitessier's Last Boat, 'Tamata' ?

I just finished reading Tamata and the Alliance and I can't find any info on what happened to his last boat, does anyone have any information they can share?

I have also been looking for any plans for it, or even the designer/builders John and Ned Hutton of San Fransisco, to no avail. Any info on that stuff?

He's talking about Tamata, the boat Moitessier had after Joshua.

Re: Where is Bernard Moitessier's last boat, the Tamata?

I think I heard or read somewhere that the boat was on the hard in Raiatea or some place like that in French Polynesia, and that his last female companion (forget her name but it's in the book) owned it. But this is just a vague recollection ... hope it helps.

Re: Where is Bernard Moitessier's last boat, the Tamata?

Here are a couple references that confirm my recollection:

Raiatea 2007

Look at the 11th thumbnail down the page. This was in 2007

And on this webpage, the Aug 11 posting. I think this is 2003

Woah sweet! Thanks for the leads guys...Raiatea looks like a good place to start

What about any ideas on the designers?

If you are looking for the builders, put an add in the sailing rag LATITUDE 38. I believe the builders were from the San Francisco area and Lat38 is well read there. ___Grant.
