Rich Men's Boat
Brenda is one of four boats built in Hong Kong to Harrison Butler's Hong Kong design of 1909. Although it is unlikely that any of these boats have survived the passage of time, the HBA is striving to find out more about them and their stories. Any photograph of these boats has yet to be found.
 Brenda had a couple of prestigious custodians during her years afloat who enthusiastically raced her. She sunk in April 1941 when capsized by a sudden squall.
