Skean Dhu : Family Yacht 
Skean Dhu was initially, and for many years, the Watson's family boat. She was built in Poole, Dorset, and that has until relatively recently been her home port. She's now to be found on the River Orwell where, indeed, a fair few of Alan Buchanan designed boats are stationed.
