FRANCINE was built for the Admiralty in 1940 as a Naval Pinnace and is a vessel of teak and oak construction. There is some doubt whether she was built by Groves and Gutteridge or J Samuel White. She was originally single engined but had twin engines installed at some point.
A full restoration back to her original appearance is planned to begin in Spring 2017 when the vessel is back in Southampton.
Built either by Groves and Gutteridge or J Samuel White
