Francis Morgan Giles was nothing if not versatile. Not only did he design beautiful and successful boats over a wide spectrum, he was a first class boat builder, seaman and racing helmsman. This single chine hull twin-engined motor yacht was one of more than a thousand yachts built at his Teignmouth yard, which he set up in the 1920s and was noted for the high quality of construction and craftsmanship.

Coming up for her half century, this boat has been refurbished over the last few years to a high standard and equipped also with more modern systems and navigation instruments - all by a very experienced owner with a remarkable crewing record in offshore powerboat racing, including: Class II British & World Champion 1979 with David Hagan, 1982 world champion and four times winner of the Cowes to Torquay race 1982-1985 with Renato Della Valle and Gianfranco Rossi, and 2nd in the 1984 Round Britain race.
