Wooden Ships Comments on this Alfred Mylne Sloop

Designed by Alfred Mylne and co. and built by the Bute Slip Dock Ltd in 1961.

With 4 known previous owners she has apparently spent most of her life in Scotland, mainly cruising the west coast.  Bought by the present owner in 2011 and refitted at that time to include checking keel bolts and new standing rigging.  The boat has been re-wired in July 2021.

A very elegant boat, set up for single handed sailing, she is easy to sail alone or with a crew and offers good performance for cruising and racing.  Interior volume is better than might be expected with 5 berths and over 6’ headroom.  Described by Ian Nicholson, well known surveyor and author as “one of the loveliest boats in Britain.”
