A Great Cutter Reborn

Pellew SailplanFor many years there has been a desire to resurrect a legendary Falmouth Pilot cutter; and rekindle wooden shipbuilding in Cornwall. We have chosen to faithfully recreate one of the longest-surviving and best-documented of the cutters, the Vincent, built in 1852 for the Vincent family of St Mawes. She worked successfully for 70 years until being retired in 1922, ending her days as a houseboat at Freshwater on the Percuil River. Our vessel will be named Pellew in honour of the great Cornish maritime hero.
