Alfred Mylne 60 ft Ketch 1929
This vessel is a restoration project
Designed by Alfred Mylne and built in 1929 by The Bute Slip Dock Co. in Port Bannatyne, MINGARY was commissioned by John and Alan McKean to spend her early years cruising the west coast of Scotland. Post war from the early 50s she was owned by a Lt Col. DAF Home; her home port Greenock.
By 1971 she was in the ownership of Baron and Baroness De Heeckeren d\'Anthes and based in Palma, Majorca.
In 1987 MINGARY crossed the Atlantic to Bermuda,there most unfortunately becoming a victim of Hurricane Emily that autumn and sustaining some damage. In 1990 fully refitted, she set sail on her second \'maiden voyage\' - a three week trip from Cornwall to Mallorca - performing impeccably without a creak or groan to be heard.
Throughout her history she has proved remarkably manageable and solid on even the toughest passages and she is a pure joy to sail short handed or in company.
Having spent several years cruising the Swedish archipelago, she was brought back across the North Sea in September 2002, visiting her Port Bannatyne birthplace en route for her winter mooring. Her owners were amazed at the reception received in Scotland - although perhaps they should not have been so surprised considering she was one of the finest Mylne yachts coming home for the first time in forty years!
The interior has been removed completely awaiting her new owner’s specification

MINGARY presents an opportunity. From the board of Alfred Mylne, this 60 foot ketch planked in teak and originally built to a very high specification is part way through a major refit. Her new owner will be in a position to specify the detail of her interior; either following her original Alfred Mylne layout or a variation giving 3 sleeping cabins together with berths in the saloon and deckhouse for which drawings are available by Fairlie Restorations – and included among the photographs in this presentation.
A typical gentleman’s cruising yacht of her time with her spoon bow and elegant counter MINGARY is now lying inside the workshed of Fairlie Restorations at Port Hamble, Southampton, ready to be completed as an exquisite family yacht and mindful of her former MCA coding - with the option of charter.
