Nova II





Nova II is a 1966 16' 6" Eddy runabout, apparently built by Eddy as his personal boat.

The boat was eventually sold, fitted with a 327 Corvette and went racing with the Gippsland District Power Boat Club in Victoria.



Nova II was retired from racing and sold, minus its engine. A 283 Chev V8 was then fitted and remained in the Gippsland district.


The boat was sold again in 2002 and relocated to Tocumwal, spending the next couple of years cruising the Murray


The boat was obtained by Greg Carr in 2004 and returned to Victoria


Nova II is patiently waiting for a thoroughly deserved restoration
