The “Nobby” was the traditional fishing/ working boat of North West England, evolving into its present form in 1900’s, with elliptical counter stern and cutaway forefoot. Built to work the exposed waters and channels from Mid Wales to South West Scotland, they had to be seaworthy and manoeuvrable, and the need to land their catches early for the Lancashire “High Tea” meant speed was a requirement too! Many were also built for use as yachts, pilot boats and ferries.
