Yavanna in Classic Boat, April 2015


Yavanna : 1960s Cutting Edge Technological Luxuary
This substantial and luxurious was up for sale with Wooden Ships in April 2015 with an asking price of £115,000. The website records her being sold but, curiously, she then turned up as one of five boats being actioned off at Chichester Marina in April 2017. One can only hope that she has since fallen into good and caring hands. Built to the Lloyd's 100A1 standard she was called Chouette up to 1969, then Artemis until 1978 before becoming Yavanna.
