  • built in 1964 after drawings by James Mc Gruer at the shipyard of James Adam & Sons in Southwest Scotland on the river Clyde; that type of boat was used in the late 19. century for fishing for herring.
  • until the 1990s she sailed at the Scottish and English coast; after a damage in the Guld of Morbihan, FRA she was abandoned to her fate.
  • rediscovered by Benoît Cayla and Cyrille Hébert, who started an exhaustive repair and restoration, since about 2009 she is homeported in Douarnenez, FRA.
  • named "Rose of Argyll" after a coastal area in Scotland.
