Rosheeba : Restoration Project
This substantial and capable yacht has had an eventful life, first as a racer, then a Sea School boat, a long distance cruising yacht and, most recently, as a boat in need of restoration. She's been renamed a bewildering number of times, but it would seem she's now once again known as Rosheeba, a name she first carried between 1965 and 1973. The owner history is taken from the official Lloyd's Registers and dose not quite match some of the 'chat' found on the internet. Here are the name change details up to 1980, also from Lloyd's: In 1962 RW Amey sold his 12 ton Alan Buchanan designed Noryema, and launched the 16 ton Noryema II, renamed Rosheeba by her second owner three years later in 1965. In 1973 she became Tiree III of Bosham, in 1979 Bequila.
