Rowan IV


Rowan IV : For Sale, Located on the UK's South Coast
Rowan IV is a much loved and well looked after classic yacht, based on the traditional lines of the Loch Fyne Skiff. She's currently for sale for £18,000; the details on the OGA website would be difficult the better, although I have contributed to the information readily to hand by looking up the names of previous owners, and locating a photograph of the attractive book, Leaves From Rowan's Logs, written by RB Carslaw that details some of her earliest adventures in Scottish waters. Copies of the book rarely sell for less than £45.
