Luck is supposed to favour the brave – there is something almost humble about this boat but surely she courageously dropped her pilot on board in a sou’ westerly gale in the Swash channel off Poole at the turn of the 19th Century. Her reward has been a loving rebuild leaving her as strong and trustworthy now as then – a reprieve indeed – she has a very large cockpit for a vessel of this style and with generous raised bulwarks, her rig and inventory make her incredibly user friendly for such a boat from this period.

Built by Newmans, REPRIEVE was apparently one of only two pilot cutters known to have been constructed in Poole. In the 1950s - then rigged as a yawl, she was acquired by Cyril Cozens, who with his father restored her to her original cutter rig. Up to the early ‘80s, he used her both for pleasure and as a workhorse, positioning mooring buoys in support of his role as bosun of Marchwood Sailing Club. A lovely picture of her under full sail was probably at an old gaffers race in 1978.
A turndown in Cyril’s fortunes had REPRIEVE permanently laid up at Quayside Marina in Southampton and in 1994, looking for a project her present owner acquired her - while retaining Cyril and his boat building skills for the restoration. This was to be major task, not helped - after much work had already been done - in her being unwittingly moved and grounded on a falling tide before she was properly seaworthy. Nevertheless recovered again, work restarted in May 2000 and she progressed albeit slowly to her completion and re commission in the Autumn of 2007.
