A Super example of this renowned motor-yacht. She is truly something of beauty, The owners have kept her well maintained and she has been "updated" with kit and services in a sympathetic manner.. she offers super sea-keeping, solid easy maneuverability, long deep keel and twin shaft drive with recent bow thruster, and fabulous cruising range and economy at her leisurely 9/10 knot cruise. Not to be confused with just "some old wooden boat"!

Beleived to be one of the last if not the last of the "Ormidale class" and the only classed LLOYDS 100A1 on build, She has had 6 owners including current, and was built for John Sterhouse of Glasgow and we have the original launch party Photos !! she was sold to a retired Army Colonel in the early 80's who kept her in Dartmouth, till 1992 when she was sold to a french owner who registered her under a Canadian flag and kept her in Brittany. Sold in 1995 to Mr Hannam and started a complete Refit, by R J Prior Burnham Ltd costing some £50,000 sold again in 1999 to MR Cassidy who spent nearly £75,000 between 1999 and 2002. Last survey for current owner in Apri 2008 "No major defects". The current owner has maintained her and has also upgraded many items as she has needed them, but has also improved various aspects like the Showers, aft davits, battery power, nav kit etc.
