This very pretty Gentlemans Motor launch probably dates from the 1930's. Her name could well be a combination of the owners childrens names which was a practise in the early years of the 20th century.

She appears to have been professionally made but we have been unable to find the design in any of the catalogues of the time.

She can be displayed or, with some restoration, she could be returned to sailing condition. 

The hull is structurally good with a separate deck and superstructure.

The paintwork is all original. There are one or two marks and part of the rubbing strake at the bow is missing. One of the port holes is missing.

The superstructure, wheelhouse and cabin are removable. They are original and in good order although there is a little damage to the wheelhouse roof.

There are some nice deck fittings and there is a dinghy with davits.

It is likely that she would have been powered by an electric motor. It has been removed and it appears someone may have begun to fit a new engine. The prop shaft may also have been changed.

She is a very attractive yacht and very collectable.

Large motor yachts are becoming increasingly difficult to find.

The stands appear to be original and are included in the sale.
