Built 1934 by Frank Curtis Boatyards, Looe, Cornwall, a yawl rigged Looe lugger. She had a Ford diesel engine installed in 1965. She is one of only two Looe luggers that were classed as motor yachts from the same design as the luggers.
She was used as a charter vessel in the Mediterranean for 12 years and Sir John Mills and Sir Alec Rose were regulars aboard. She was made seaworthy by one of her previous owners after being laid up in a shed for eight years but later fell into disrepair again.
In 2007 she underwent restoration after many years of neglect which included major work on her deck, beams and a new transom.
In November 2012 the vessel was reported as having been broken up.
