Glala in 1985
Glala is a classic motor yacht built by A.R Luke before the First World War. She has had an eventful history that includes service with the Royal Navy and the National Fire Service in the 1940s.
She is 78 feet long, 51 tons (GRT) and traditionally built out of teak and oak. She is powered by two Gardner 6LXB engines.
On special occasions Glala wears the flags of the National Historic Fleet and the Association of Dunkirk Little Ships.
This website documents her history and the work we are doing to restore her.
