GLALA HAS NEW OWNERS
The opportunity to own a beautiful and unique Edwardian motor yacht, a vessel in the National Historic Fleet and one of the largest of the Dunkirk little ships, was too good to pass up.
She is a restoration project. The major repairs have been done: the hull is sound, she has new solid-teak decks, most of the superstructure is restored, the engines have been rebuilt - but have been sitting in a wet engine room. There is a lot more to do, the exterior needs finishing and she needs to be fitted out.
We are very excited to be her new custodians and hope to get her back in the water as soon as possible - with a view to taking her on the next Dunkirk return trip in 2020.
A professional survey was done in 2011 while work was in progress, it is available here:

... and some drawings of the new proposed layout. There is work to do before she looks like this:
- ELEVATION -
- PLANS -
This new layout makes better use of the interior space by eliminating the various corridors of the original. At the same time it is not overly modern and can be built to be in keeping with her character. The PLANS section of this website describes these renovation issues.
Glala is still out of the water but the restoration is more than half-way there. If you are interested in her you can keep up with the website or if you would like to visit her you can contact us here;
