The Caravel Notorious

Urangan, Hervey Bay, Fraser Coast Area

Notorious is a full size, wooden, sailing, re-creation of a Portuguese or Spanish caravel from the Age of Discovery, researched, designed, and built single-handedly, from salvaged Monterey cypress logs, by Graeme Wylie, at his home in Bushfield, S/W Victoria, Australia.

Launched in February 2011 at nearby Port Fairy, Notorious has sailed over 16,000 nautical miles in the Southern Ocean, Bass Strait, the Tasman and Coral Seas.

Notorious is a Museum Ship and is open for public inspection, onboard and below deck, when berthed at a port of call. Notorious is the only sailing caravel in the Southern Hemisphere, Australia's earliest ship re-construction, and Australia's only lateen-rigged ship.
