One of only two survivors from the great Cardiff yard of Hambly, known for producing famously elegant working cutters, MARIAN is the 2nd oldest of only 18 remaining Bristol Channel pilot cutters. In 1999 master shipwright David Walkey, notable surveyor David Cox and designer Ed Burnett were all involved in the rebuild that has left MARIAN immensely strong. The qualities that served her during her working life contribute now to an incredibly seaworthy, comfortable vessel with long legs - and she is one of the fastest pilot cutters afloat. The beauty, simplicity and almost humble presence of this boat will take your breath away.

Restorations can sometimes struggle to restore the simplicity of the original – and hence the spirit of such a vessel. The current owner was adamant that MARIAN should be as she had been – a working pilot cutter and has therefore succeeded on all counts – not least that she can be sailed as hard as originally intended too!
