PILKINGTON was built in 1900 in Marshside, Southport, and named in honour of Sir George Pilkington who was the MP for Southport.
She has an iron keelson and ballast ingots moulded to fit their locations. She fished in Hoylake, Southport and North Wales.
In the 1980s, she was restored and rebuilt as a yacht by Fred Turner to original standards. Presently she is believed to be the last known 'Southport Nobby' in existence.
