THREE BROTHERS was built in 1912 as a sailing coble and is believed to be the only surviving example of a sailing coble in the country. She had an engine fitted after World War I and worked from Bridlington Harbour until 1946. She then went to the Tees for some years and in 1970 was pictured in Whitby. The Bridlington Harbour Commissioners brought her back to Bridlington in 1983 when major work was undertaken to restore and rebuild her.
Having undergone further repairs in 2004, THREE BROTHERS is currently maintained and sailed by the volunteers of the Sailing Coble Preservation Society.
