MOOSK is a gaff yawl of teak clinker construction with a Ford diesel engine. Built by W.H.Thomas in Falmouth in 1906 as an auxiliary yacht, she was one of the first boats to be built with a motor and ‘sparks’ for lighting the cabin. After being the joy of many owners during her first forty years of life, her sailing history is somewhat obscure and she was found abandoned and wrecked in Glasgow in 1998. Rescued by ISCA and transported to East Anglia, her re-build was completed by G.Brown & Son in Southwold, Suffolk and she was re-launched on 21 August 2001.
During the refit works in 2015 Moosk , along with having structural restoration works completed she was fitted with a new engine changing from her Ford diesel engine to a Volvo Penta to ensure that she can continue her work with her current owners. Her topsides were also repainted from cream to green
As of the 2017 sailing season Moosk is an RYA recognised training vessel up to Yachtmaster Offshore. As well as doing her usual programme of sail training throughout the season, she now provides Day Skippers and Yachtmaster weeks for up to 5 students at a time
