 wooden ships comments on this Mylne sailing dinghy 

12′ gunter rigged sailing dinghy designed by the great Alfred Mylne. Built 1923

This very pretty little boat has been rebuilt by current professional boat builder owner and is a very nice example of the type.

The back-board on the after seat is typical of a boat which was destined for a passenger to be rowed on occasions and that,  in addition to eye bolts in the transom and the inside of the stem, makes us think she was probably originally destined to be hung in davits for a large yacht.

Her very light spruce planking would support this theory.

The 95’ Thendara and the Atlantide were both built at the same time so this fine little boat could have been carried on board either yacht.


In the rebuild all the steam bent timbers were replaced and fastened with copper nails and roves.

The sheer strakes were both replaced in mahogany.

The centre-board was replaced in mahogany together with part of the oak keel in way.

The centre board was regalvanised.

The whole boat was stripped and revarnished inside and out.

New bottom boards fitted.
