Wyvern: wonderfull historical steel sloop designed by F. Murdoch and completed by C&N – great pedigree, steel hull thikness in perfect condition. as teak deck, superstructure, engine and so on. Details of restoration to complete. The boat is recovered in hangar ready to be inspected.

William and Frank Murdoch designed and built Wyvern in their shipyard in Antwerp and later the boat was completed in Camper & Nicholson in Gosport. Frank had been the general manager and rigger of Thomas Sopwith’s J Class Endevour, America’s Cup challenger in 1934. He also invented a 2 speed whinch, always for Endeavour. He worked definitely for C&N from IIWW and he brought there Wyvern to be completed in 1947. In the same year she wins North Sea Race and she also defeats (most of all in light breeze that is worst condition for steel hull) famous L. Giles Maid of Malham. Wyvern wins other races and North Sea Race also in 1948. This is the reason Murdoch decides to build other 2 sisterships Wyvern II and Bruma. In 1950 William Murdoch sails to Med and Yachting World mentions the boat as one of the most important of that period.
