GUILLEMOT is a labour of love – her last two owners have carefully brought her back to life substantially restoring her to a high level of thorough and painstaking workmanship, combined with great attention to detail and use of the best possible materials. The end result is a stunning vessel above and below the waterline, inside and out. Modern comforts and equipment have been incorporated into the traditional accommodation without spoiling her unique ambience. Most recently she has had new additions including her deck replaced, new caulking done in the traditional way, bright work re-varnished, engines fully serviced, new life raft, tender and bathing platform.
