Built in 1932 as a Scottish Herring Drifter by William Weatherhead and Sons of Cockenzie Scotland, she was one of hundreds that were built at the time and remained in the industry until the 1970's. After undergoing an extensive professional refit which involved raising the deck which now gives her over 6ft of headroom below, but retaining a lot of her original features she was coded and used for charter work. The decks are of Iroko and have been covered in epoxy with granulated cork impressed into wet resin which creates a non slip waterproof deck. The bulwarks have also been replaced on this boat.
The current owners have quite literally lavished time, money and effort getting her to her present condition and it shows in abundance.
Having known the owners of this boat for quite some time and have seen this boat out of the water, I knew it was going to be something special. From stepping aboard it was evident that so much money had been spent on this boat as well as a lot of thought and pre planning. A full survey was conducted in 2013 and all that was picked up (which wasn't much at all) has been addressed.
This boat is listed on The Historic Ships register, was MCA coded although that has lapsed but it does cover a multitude of uses, either as a luxury live-aboard, or as a charter vessel or indeed as a long distance cruiser. You would be sincerely hard pressed to find a finer example and must be worth viewing for the serious buyer.
