Crunluath was built by William Boag and his sons at Largs and was first launched in 1965. She is carvel built from mahogany planks on oak frames with a plywood deck and cabin roof. Like all the Honey Bees I have encountered she has a masthead sloop rig, not the fractional rig shown on the original plans.
Originally fitted with a Stuart-Turner 8hp petrol engine she now has a new Vetus 16hp diesel replacing a Volvo MD7a.
She cost her original owner £4500, including £4.10s for the teak cockpit gratings which are still on the boat.
She was a well known racing boat on the Clyde and west coast and has had several owners. I have owned her since 2002.
