Built for Ron Amey in 1961 by William King & Sons,  NORYEMA II had much success and got into the Admirals cup team that he went on to win in 1963 with NORYEMA III. Built to Lloyd’s A1 standard she was then used at a sailing school.  She was then sold and her name changed again and the new owner sailed the Atlantic and lived in the Caribbean for six years and then on her return she was hidden away in Cornwall under a poly tunnel for over twenty five years until purchased by her current owner.

Now being restored with a new engine and like for like materials.
