This vessel was built in Rhodesia in the mid-sixties by a wealthy farmer, and spent the first seven years of her life in the Indian Ocean. She was then shipped to Scotland and headed south to the river Dart where she was based for many years. When sold on in 1995 she was in poor condition and underwent a major rebuild and restoration at huge expense between 1995 and August 1998 when she was relaunched. New sections included the whole transom, chine logs, self-draining cockpit, main bulkhead, beam shelf, bridgedeck structure, port and for'd cabin trunk, foredeck beams and much more. The hull and decks were completely stripped of old Cascover sheathing and professionally resheathed with West System epoxy. All steelwork was regalvanised and inaccessible items replaced with stainless. All records and receipts for professional work have been kept, as well as many photographs of the restoration. Upon completion of the renovation, the previous owner found his health deteriorating, and so he reluctantly put her up for sale. The present owner purchased purchased her in November 2003 and she returned to the West Coast of Scotland as a floating home for 18 months. She then returned to the south coast during the 2005 season and has remained there since.
