History

BEROE is a gaff cutter of carvel construction, built of pitch pine on grown oak and steamed oak intermediates. She was built by Jardines on the Isle of Bute in 1887 to an original design by G L Watson of Glasgow and was commissioned by the Collins family (publishers) for racing on the Scottish Lochs. New standing & running rigging and a Lister/Petter Alpha 3 engine were installed by the current owner and an interior refit is due to start in 2009/10.
