McGruer Romella class

Wooden Ships Comments

Designed by McGruers and built by Harry Feltham of Portsmouth in 1953. Very typical McGruer lines with an elegant underwater shape, nice sheer line and a reasonably high but nicely shaped coachroof. The design is known as a Romella Class and she was the first of about 7 boats built by Feltham to this design.

She has been in the previous ownership since 1992 and was sailed extensively after a major refit which took 4 years with the work being completed in 1996. She was laid up ashore and undercover in 2003 until 2013 when with the current owner more updating work was carried out with a replacement of the navigation equipment amongst other bits. There was also some more structural work completed at this time including replacement of the keel bolts. She is now in fine condition and comes with a very complete inventory and good equipment.
