MARISKHA, gaff cutter yacht with Loch Fyne skiff stern, was designed by David Fyfe and built by Morris & Lorrimer at Sandbanks, Bute in 1895. She was built for a Mr Noel Guiness who was one of the founder members of the Howth Yacht Club in the same year. The family apparently still sails from Howth Yacht Club today. The yacht cruised extensively until she was sold in 1909. In 1998, the vessel was known to be undergoing a full restoration being reframed, having new floors, releasing lead keel, a new stern-post and stem with many new planks and a new deck.
