    11. COMMENTS

      The Clyde 20 ton class was originally commissioned by the Clyde Corinthian Sailing Club, to a design by the great Alfred Mylne (Kelpie, Atlantide, Thendara, The Blue Peter, Albyn). Of the five built, only Tigris survives, and they were known for their outstanding seaworthiness, with a good turn of speed in a stiff breeze. (Tigris won her class at St Tropez in 2013) Now for sale in the first time in many years, Tigris represents a great opportunity to purchase a vessel in near original configuration, in excellent condition, and capable of continuing the regatta-winning tradition for many generations to come.
    12. REFIT NOTES

      In 2001 the boat underwent a complete restoration in Southern England by an experienced Owner/Boat Builder. Details of this refit are hard to come by, but a huge amount of good quality work was done including to the structure, new deck, new rig , new deck furniture, and so forth. In 2014 the owners decided to give her a new lease of life, and sent Tigris to the famous Brittany yard of Chantier du Guip in Brest. Renowned for their expertise in all aspects of wooden boat construction, they proceeded to strengthen and upgrade her structure. This work included, amongst other items: Rebuilding the stem; fabrication and fitting of new bronze floors; replacing the mast step with a new one in laminated Iroko, with stainless steel strengthening ; re-building parts of the bulwarks; dismantling and rebuilding interior bulkheads; removal and rebuilding of the rudder and rudder tube; renewing of through-hull valves; changing the position of the engine. A full list is available for interested parties.
