MAGGIE HELEN is an ex-Zulu fishing boat, with official number 161170, registered at Lerwick. She was designed by John Shewan and built by Hay & Co Ltd. in 1904 at Hays Dock, Lerwick. Her hull was carvel built with larch planking, oak frames and a redwood deck fastened with iron nails. She has a pointed bow, a plumb straight stem and a Zulu stern. As a fishing vessel, she was converted to motor propulsion. In 1952 she was re-rigged and renamed LOKI as a yacht with Bermudan schooner rig, then further converted in 1960 as a motor cruiser. She cruised around Shetland and to Scandinavia every summer from 1953 to 1997. The MAGGIE HELEN currently comprises a partly-completed restoration project effected in 2007-‘09, with planking complete but requiring caulking. She is a hull only, with no deck or superstructure.
