FRECKLES was built in 1947 by Bute of Cardiff to a design by Jack Laurent Giles. Commissioned by a Royal Navy Doctor, Dr Seaward Snr, she was used by the family for many years, moored under a viaduct in St Germans, Cornwall.
FRECKLES was eventually stored in yard at Boating World in Landrake, Corwnall, for 17 years when her current owner found her. Restoration began approximately 11 years ago starting with an assessment of the vessel and the removal of her keel.
Since then various works have been undertaken with the aim of fully restoring the vessel. FRECKLES has been re-decked and has had a new engine installed - a 1950s, side valve, 2 cylinder Volvo.
In 2007, she was being renovated by a new owner.
