Designed as a private motor yacht on the lines of a Scottish fishing vessel, BLUE HILLS was commissioned for a RNVR commander the year before WW2. She was commandeered by the Ministry of Defence during the war but there are no records of her activities during this period. She remains in her original layout with many of her original features still on place. The timbers are all original but the two engines are not. She also has some unusual features designed by Kelvin for the motorcraft.
Built and launched by W.Weatherhead & Son at Cockenzie, Firth of Forth for Cmdr G.F.Gilliland who registered her with ROCC, of which he was a member.
Commandeered by MOD. Featured in Yachting monthly, June edition.
Sold back into private ownership.
