Built in Wales,UK, by John Williams, a professional boat builder for his own use, but due to his ill health, had to sell the yacht before fully completed. It was bought, rigged and launched by present owners in Dec 1997 in Southampton
She is built from steel, which was rolled to give the very fair lines, not often seen in a steel yacht of this size, the steel totally encloses the yacht, with quality ¾ inch thick teak decks fitted to the steel. The interior steel has been painted with epoxy paint, and sprayed with two inches of foam to prevent condensation.
