Wooden Ships Comments
Designed by John Bain and built by Silvers of Rosneath in 1946. She retains many of the features of the pre-war designs and is typical of the quality from Silvers who produced many of the finest motor yachts of the period.
Unusually she is planked entirely of teak using left over timber from the war effort making her a rather special yacht. Major refit around 1997. Thorough refit in present ownership including full cosmetics, new wiring and plumbing and new engines all in the last few years. A very smart and attractive motor yacht and a very manageable size.
