Isis

Isis was built in Fowey and launched in 1908 as a gentleman’s yacht based on the lines of a Falmouth Quay Punt. She was used for fishing in the winter and racing in the summer.

She spent the war years around Southampton and the Solent before being sailed out to Sri Lanka in the 70’s where she was badly eaten out by Termites. Having purchased her in this state, her previous owner sailed her on to Singapore where she underwent an extensive rebuild with her planks and frames being replaced with the Malaysian (termite resistant!) hardwood, Chengal.

Being relaunched in the early 80’s, and rebuilt without an engine, she voyaged for 8 years and returned to Porthleven via the Cape of Good Hope. In the 90’s she then voyaged onto the Mediterranean where she spent 10 years before again returning to Porthleven, and more lately, the Helford Passage, where her current owners discovered her. Over the last couple of years she has received a fair bit of tender loving care and has also had an engine installed.
