The ‘Pacific Lady’ is actually the 75-foot schooner ‘Derwent Hunter’, leased by NLT for the series from a private Sydney boating enthusiast. The ‘Derwent Hunter’ was launched in 1945 as a crayfish boat, and was later used by the CSIRO (Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation) for marine research, in which capacity she journeyed to many Pacific Islands and as far afield as the South Pole. The two-masted schooner also had two diesel engines for auxiliary power.
