VILIA

 Born as a fast cruiser , she was designed by  Vincent Craig for the  businessman Hugh Garrett .Vilia was built and launched by  Paddy McKeown boatyard in  Belfast in 1910, as one could read on the article appare on  Yachting Monthly in  november 1910.Garrett took part to several races between North Ireland and Scotland . The second owner was   Robert Barbour of Glasgow. Up to the 30’ies the fast cutter was based in Scotland , then on the english east coast . In 1936 Vilia takes a navigation to Norway trough the North sea. In  1946 she is transformed in gaff yawl and named  Regina Coeli and in 1963 she is based again in Ireland  . First important refit in 1969-1970 at Bangor’s shipyard where the cabin’s trunk is totally rebuilt , but the planking of the whole hull is found sound and strong. In 1991 she takes part to the  Cutty Sark Tall Ships Race in France, where Vilia is the smallest yacht present.In 2000 she comes back to the original rig (gaff cutter) and name , and today she looks exactly like she was in 1910 ,but with an engine, folding propeller, electric system, navigation and safety equipments.

In 2011 the new Italian owner shipped her down in the east Mediterranean sea and she is actually based in Turkey

Construction: She is built from carvel mahogany planking on oak frames and copper fastened throughout. Her frames consist of 6” spaced bent timbers with every third a sawn intermediate frame. Five 3” timber floor frames support the lead keel over the oak keelson via bronze bolts. Her decks (sides, forward and aft) are replacement teak on ply, while her coach roof remains original, (probably pine) although the canvas has been replaced with an epoxy (or polyester) scrim. The deck structure is stiffened with galvanised steel hanging knees (4 per side) and twin lodging knees adjacent to the mast partner. Originally built and sailed without an engine, a Beta 20hp diesel was fitted in 1994 which drives a folding propeller, offset to the port side She is rigged as a gaff cutter with Spruce spars. Vilia’s main features (hull and superstructure) remains largely original but  she has undergone sympathetic updating.

Accomodations. The interior is nice  and dry with recent cushion recovering in acrylic canvas. The white paintwork and varnish work is in good condition. Few modifications from the original layout seem to have been made, apart from the large engine box intrusion into the galley area.
