Wooden Ships Comments on this Loch Fyne Skiff type fishing vessel
Built as a fishing boat by Nobles of Fraserburgh, Scotland in 1926 and fished out of ports around the east and west coasts of Scotland, eventually finishing her career in Killala, Ireland. Now converted to a private yacht she needs a new owner to finish off the work. This is an interesting boat with lines of a Loch Fyne skiff which will always attract attention wherever she goes.
