Built in 1935 by Southampton Launch & Boat Co., GWENNA is a twin screw cruising yacht of timber construction, carvel built with twin Ford diesel engines of 3.6 litre each. Whilst her history is currently being researched by her current owner, the vessel underwent restoration in Newhaven. She is a classic design and believed to be the only remaining example of a vessel significant to the Southampton area constructed at that time. In 2008 she was moved from Newhaven to Sovereign Harbour, Eastbourne, to undergo a refit.
