BONITA was built by William Crossfield & Sons in Arnside in 1888. She is considered to be the oldest boat still afloat that was built by Crossfields and she has never been rebuilt, retaining her original planks, frames and fastenings.
She was originally built as a racing cutter, but she was converted to a yawl rig for cruising in 1907. Subsequently, an engine was added in 1929.
BONITA has been owned by the Beckett family since 1937 and the complete list of her owners can be found on Lloyds Register of Yachts.
