I'm not sure if this should go in here or in the classics forum:

Clyde Marina was mentioned in another thread, and looking at their website I spotted this in their 2015 yearbook.

She reminds me of some Laurent Giles yachts I've seen, which is what piqued my interest.

The Mylne and Clark designs are a bit finer lined; having spent a lot of time alongside and lusting after the Buchanan designed ' Tuppitoo ' she looks very much like his work, a little bit chunkier and dare I say more useful as a cruiser.

Could be.

There is a wonderful book, ' The Proper Yacht ' by Arthur Beiser, with descriptions, photo's and illustrations of the work of all these great designers; wish I had a copy but as I recall it costs a fortune.

Strolls,

thanks very much; it has been on the back burner of my wish lists since a boy, I'll be all over Amazon in a few seconds !

Ta,

Andy

She's "Bosun" a Robert Clarke design, built by Berthons in 1962. I believe owned by Bosunof of this parish.
