The lines were taken from the Vincent, a Falmouth Pilot cutter built in 1852 for the Vincent family of St Mawes. She worked for 70 years as a pilot boat, finally retiring in 1922 and ending her days as a houseboat on the Percuil River very close to the yard where she had been built.
When the idea to build a new pilot cutter of considerable size was born, the lines of Vincent were seen as the ideal basis and the project to build Pellew began. Her keel was laid in 2017 and less than 3 years later she was launched to begin a career as a commercial charter vessel.
The boat was designed and built from the very start to comply with the MCA regulations and has been constructed to MCA Category 0 standards so that she can operate worldwide. She is currently coded to Category 2 (60Nm from safe haven) but with extra safety and communication gear she is eligible for Category 0. She is fastened throughout with bronze and copper and is planked in oak top to bottom so has been built to last from the best available materials.
Pellew is an extremely tough and capable vessel, but elegant and graceful as well. She works well as a charter boat, offering awe inspiring holidays on the west coast of Scotland, but she could very well be used as a sail training vessel or for expedition voyages to remote parts of the world.
She has 8 guest berths and is licenced for 15 persons in total with a cosy crew cabin aft, large saloon, guest accommodation forward and 3 heads compartments with showers. Her commercial grade galley can easily cater for a full complement of crew with large fridge and freezer, dishwasher and oven.
This is the biggest boat to have been built in wood in the UK for many years and was a landmark project, the result is a superb vessel that will survive for decades to come and this is perhaps a once in a lifetime opportunity to purchase a new boat of this size and type
