This Mounts Bay Jolly boat is currently in dry storage and waiting for a new owner to spend some money bringing her back to her original racing condition. She has a known local history and we believe is one of the early local builds pre-dating the Uffa Fox designs. More of her story is available. Please get in touch.
Although still quite unsure, we believe the boat has been known as Trefusis, when owned by the gardener of Captain Dowman of Trefusis estate. Local mounts bay sailing club members and a mount boatman believes she may be the Treloweth.
The boats that raced in mounts bay during the 1950s were Morgan Giles designed West of England Conference Class 18ft Jolly Boats. Please see the Classic Boat article in the link below.
