Full Specification

Wooden Ships Comments on this Victorian Gentlemans Yacht

Built by W. Watkins of Blackwall, London, and launched in 1896 to Lloyds 100A1+ at Lloyds.

Originally launched as a sloop with a centreboard, she was modified at Moodys before WWII to her current ketch rig arrangement.

In present ownership since 1972, she has been maintained as necessary with a new mast in 2005, and a new deck structure.  In 2007 she had a thorough refit with some new planking, centreline bolts and rigging.

4 good berths with masses of headroom making  her accommodation feel spacious and comfortable.

Boats of this vintage and design are harder to find these days, and she stands out as a fine looking yacht.  A 2012 survey was very complimentary and it is only the owner’s old age which has forced the sale of the boat.

Length Overall                   41’6″
