This pond yacht was made in Largs (Scotland). Largs was the home town of the Turner family who produced the Ailsa range of yachts.
This particular yacht was made by Ailsa but sold by the famous Clyde Model Dockyard shop in the Arcade in Glasgow.
She is made of aluminium with a separate wooden deck. The paintwork is original and in great condition. She does not appear to have been sailed and apart from one or two very small marks is basically as she was when she was sold.
The rig, all the spars, the bowsies and hooks are all original. The sails are made in modern material which Ailsa used towards the later years of production. The mainsail has a small tear but otherwise they are in very good condition.
The black and red colour scheme makes her a very striking yacht.
The stand is not as old as the yacht but is included in the sale if required.
