In 1963 South Devon BoatBuilders granted boat builder Harold Lang, of Sorrento, Victoria, a licence to build the Seafly in Australia. A second builder, Brian Lay in Queanbeyan, New South Wales, was authorised in 1964. In the mid 1970’s GRP Seaflys were built by Capital Industries in Canberra [for more details see our Australian Pages].
Most of the Seaflys sailed at Newcastle in Northern Ireland were built by Lesley Hanna, but two boats at least were home builds.
The Canadian Boats were all amateur constructed from plans using locally available materials.
Wewak, New Guinea
Most boats were constructed from South Devon BoatBuilders kits although at least two were inported from Australia.
