Mist, a 26ft Albert Strange Gaff Yawl Canoe stern, 1907. She makes for a very attractive Gentleman's day sailer. She could be trailed !.
She was relaunched in 2017, as a nearly new vessel after an arduous 10 year restoration. She was nominated for the Classic Boat Restoration of 2018.
Her professional shipwright owner had saved her from having been sunk in Loch Gare, Scotland. She had been abandoned there and was sat within a dry dock.
She has been beautifully restored and fitted with an electric engine, installation is still to be completed. Totally new rig and sails.

Albert Strange the designer was an enthusiast for the small boat sailor at a time when yachting was by and large the reserve of the wealthy and his early designs were for the canoe yawl – small, engine-less sailing yachts of relatively shoal draft and a pointed canoe-counter stern, a feature which Strange took to ultimate perfection.
"The lines of the stern of a yacht are more important than the bow. The stern must allow the water to run away freely with minimum drag but also provide the buoyancy required to sustain the crew in the cock-pit and lift her to a following sea."
