A 45′ lugger (78′ with bowsprit and bumpkin) carrying 2,500 sq feet of sail. Built in Looe 1921 by Dick Pearce for the J E Pengelly family for £435 and skippered by his son Alfred John. She fished for some 65 years in the pilchard, mackerel and later shark fishing industries.

She was the last sailing lugger to work out of Looe and was owned by Mike Darlington and Stuart Murray. Mike, who fished on the boat with the legendary Alfred John Pengelly said: `A J told me: “One day, she will be yours.” But he forget to say it would take 21 years…’

She was re-built as a yacht with Dandy rig and has now been refitted and converted back to her original Lug rig. She is now available for charter.
