GREYLAG is a golden era schooner oozing beauty, authenticity and impeccable pedigree - designed by the young Charles E Nicholson and built in 1897 by his family's yard, Camper & Nicholsons, Gosport. Although originally launched as a gaff main and jackyard topsail cutter - and rated as a Linear Rating Rule 40-Rater - she's been a schooner for most of her long and happy life, and in the care of the same family for the past 50 years. It is extremely rare nowadays to come across a yacht from this era so authentically preserved and still sailing as the designer imagined. GREYLAG is a Victorian gem offering the possibility to refit by winter and continue sailing and enjoying by summer.
