The Wildflower Project

The vessel Wildflower is a 28' double ended fishing boat, constructed by the renowned Blunt family boat works in Victoria and is believed to be one of the oldest continually operated commercial fishing vessels in Australia. The boat has been in the continuous ownership of the Mouchmore family for over 114 years and has spent its entire working life fishing and sailing on the waters of Princess Royal Harbour and King George Sound.


Deterioration of the hull in recent years has led to arrangements to place the fishing vessel Wildflower into the custodianship of the AMF for preservation and display. The project, including restoration and research and finally public display has widespread community support and is welcomed by the West Australian Maritime Museum.
