Athene, January 2019

Athene, January 2019

The current boatyard project is “Athene”. Probably built in 1932 as creel boat with a Lister SL3 engine, she was originally called “Guiding Star” and registered as KY240 but unfortunately the builder is unknown. She is a 20 ft. boat and was donated to the Boatyard by a Boats Club member. The volunteers are completing the refurbishment of the deck, hull and all other structures. These include repairs to the planking, replacement of the sheer plank, caulking and sealing of the deck seams and paintwork.

The boat will be for sale in early 2019. If you are interested in purchasing the boat, email us at or call us at 01333 310628.
