K3235, owned by Sandy Powell since 1996 and currently at Orakei in Auckland. Pierce Barrett believes Zabadak was the last Cav36 built and was production number 20. The following was received from John Spedding, currently living in Turkey, in November 2012: About 1983 I was in the market for a boat again. I looked at a Yacht called Kaz (or could have been Caz). It was a rough Cav 36 and was on the market for $60,000 I think. Anyway I brought her and had a new paint job done by Jim Razzy at Alloy Yachts at the time. He did the hull and decks and the finished product was amazing. White hull and blue stripes. We fitted a freezer and re named her ZABADAK. we had a lot of fun with her, but never went off shore.I have very fond memories of Zabadak.
