NYALA is unique.
Gaff Yawl from 1933, she is the first low-draft pleasure craft.
She was built in Oregon pine on oak frames by the EVERSON & SONS yards in Woodbridge, England.
She still retains the distinction of having a double copper skin on all of her immersed hull.
The plans are by MAURICE GRIFFITHS, a well-known English designer and writer, publisher of the YACHTING MONTHLY magazine, initially commissioned by American director FP CULBERT for the needs of a film.
Completely restored for the first time in 1979 by the New Zealand carpenter GRANT ADAMS, she was adapted to the great navigation and popularized by the journalist and novelist SYLVIA MURPHY.
She made the support of several books, including a book dedicated to her restoration: “Keeping NYALA in style”.
In 2011, NYALA benefited from a major new restoration, trying to keep her in style!
After 20 years in the Mediterranean, Nyala returned to her original waters in 2017 with her new owner.
Her home port is now Paimpol, in Brittany, in the Côtes d’Armor.
From her first year of francization, in 2017, she has been classified as a Patrimonial Interest Boat (BIP) by the french official Association « Patrimoine Maritime et Fluvial ».
