Does anybody know what happend to this lovely Frederick Shepperd yawl? She was last for sale a couple of years back at Woolverstone to recover outstanding marina costs but seems to have dissapeared from the East Coast. Would love to know what happened to her.

I know a little. Prior to coming down south in about 1995 she belonged to my family from the west of Scotland. We sold her to a couple from Essex.

Sometime after you lost track of her, Mr Maskell from Great Bentley, Essex took on restoring her and did a great job. Sadly he died before he could finish and she was sold about 2 years ago. I found out recently, via Mrs Maskell, that she is now actively sailing from Bembridge IOW.
