Good news! We are pleased to report that Moosk is back in good order and is looking forward to the 2018 sailing season with a watertight keel, new inner stem and stronger floors. We are incredibly grateful for funding from Arts Council England / National Lottery through the PRISM fund.
Boat builder Chris Rees at Millbrook has carried out the works, and skipper Ollie Bowden has also contributed an enormous amount of time and effort to the project over the last few weeks.
Constructed in 1906, Moosk is one of the very first private yachts to have been built with an engine, emulating technology newly pioneered in commercial vessels, and internal electric lighting which was absolutely cutting edge at the time. She certainly ‘lights up’ our fleet, so please give us a wave if you see us out in The Sound at the beginning of March and we will keep you up-to-date with progress on our website and social media.
