History

MYFANWY was built as an out and out racing yacht in 1897. She was designed by Alexander Richardson who designed many famous yachts and her builder was Samuel Bond of Birkenhead. A vessel of carvel construction, larch on oak frames, she has classic lines with a clipper bow and cruiser stern. Not much is known of her history but she is thought to have been based in the Torquay area at one time. At the time of registration, she was undergoing restoration.
