Flica 11 tender

The dinghy was built as the tender to the 12 meter class yacht Flica 11, built by Fife in 1939 to a Laurent Giles design. Flica 11 was the last large yacht built by Fife.

Built by Alex Robertson & Sons, Yacht Builders Ltd of Sandbank on the Clyde,  Scotland in 1939.

It was not uncommon in those days for a yard to pass on some of their work to a neighbouring yard especially if the time scale was tight
