In the 1990s Guy Thompson produced a custom design for the current owner and builder of AMY ROSE a time served shipwright. She was completed and launched in September 1998 and shortly after sailed to the South of France, where she has been based since. After some years sailing in the Med. she was re-fitted in 2008 and has been laid-up afloat since. AMY ROSE now requires re-commissioning and some re-fitting, we understand from the owners some deck repairs are necessary due to the ingress of fresh-water to the marine-ply subdeck.
