Built in 1909 by Bowden’s of Porthleven as a Bristol Channel Pilot Cutter, one of the smaller boats in the fleet but no less seaworthy than her bigger sisters.  She was launched from the same yard in the same year as Olga, another well-known Pilot Cutter.

This beautiful wooden yacht has a well-documented history with many long-distance adventures, in the present long ownership she has sailed numerous times to northern Norway, Svalbard and Greenland and has proven herself with many voyages through incredibly rough weather.

She had a thorough survey in 2017 after sustaining damage to her mast.  The result of this was a new mast fitted in 2018 plus a lot of work to the hull and decks to get her into top shape.  She is now ready to sail off on another long-distance adventure if required and her very experienced owner has absolute confidence in the boat, her condition and her capability at sea.

A smaller Pilot Cutter like this has many attractions, not least how easy she is to handle compared to the larger boats.  Her rig is that much smaller so there is less weight and power to control therefore requiring a smaller crew to sail her safely.  This will be a huge attraction to many buyers as the difficulty of getting crew is something which haunts many boat owners.  Her interior still has up to 6 berths with good headroom and enough storage space for supplies and equipment on long passages.

A pedigree pilot cutter with a long rich history which is in good sound condition and ready to sail.  2017 survey available along with a list of work carried out recently.
