Un-Named New Build

Khamseen Design : Published 1931 


New Build

New Build Added to Association Archives, 2015
Rumours were circulating at last week's AGM of a new Harrison Butler boat being built in Ireland. With considerable pleasure I can confirm that this is indeed the case. Stephen Morris, a boat builder at Kilrush Marina boatyard is building a wooden yacht to Harrison Butler's Khamseen design out of Alpine larch. The project is taking shape inside his spacious garage beside his house near Moyasta. As is appropriate in our recessionary times, much of the timber being used is that left over from a consignment brought in from Austria for the building of Jeanie Johnston. I am hoping to sail Tramontana around Ireland, summer 2015; Kilrush is certainly high on the list of ports of call !
