William Garden was a Naval Architect and prolific yacht designer based in British Columbia. This double ended Bermudan sloop was built in Sydney, Australia during 1967/68 and was sailed to the UK via the Pacific and Panama, ending her journey on the west coast of Scotland. She has then passed between two owners including the current. She has gone on to sail to the Mediterranean where she has spent a number of years being sailed leisurely before returning to the UK late last year. During the journey the gear box gave out which has been replaced with new along with new water pump. She has also undergone a full mechanical service in December 2021.
