History of Seahaven
A small timber fibro building was erected on the north east corner of the Mission to Seamen at Outer Harbor and named SeaHaven. It was well used until the advent of World War Il curtailed activities. It suffered neglect during that time and was eventually demolished. By the end of the war the last of the Sail Training ships had been returned to their owners for further duty either in war service or commercial usage. SeaHaven Il was erected in 1945 on land obtained from the Harbors Department that is situated west of the Royal South Australian Yacht Squadron, SeaHaven Ill came into being in 1961 replacing number Il and was in service until 2004 when it was decided better facilities were required. While Sea-Haven Ill held fond memories for so many that visited her, it was time for a change! SeaHaven IV is now positioned on the site of the boatshed for SeaHaven Ill. Following the shifting of the boat shed, the brand new building, which meets all common standards now required, was trucked in. On July 6th 2006, SeaHaven IV was officially opened by the Chief Commissioner Mr. Reg. Williams R.F.D.
