MFV converted ketch – 1955

, ,
add to favorites

Built in Crosshaven Ireland in 1954/5 as a fishing vessel and naval tender.

In the 1960’s she was converted to a yacht for the famous novelist Alistair MacLean. He cruised extensively in the Hebrides and the yacht is well recognized there.

Between the years 2000 and 2005 the yacht was extensively refitted, including new teak decks, by Chantier Etoile in St Malo.

On returning to Jersey the yacht set off on the “retirement cruise” of the present owners. This took her to England, Ireland, Scotland, Norway and most of the Baltic countries. Some work was done at the well known wooden boatyard, Ring Andersen in Denmark.

She has a Gardner Engine.

Currently lying in Jersey in the Channel Islands, Eabora is now looking for new owners to love and care for her and provide yet more years of pleasurable service.
