Lona III

Clark designed Lona III for himself and had her built in Burnham-on -Crouch at the William King and Sons shipyard. She was launched in 1907 and of the many boats he owned she was his favourite.

Lona III was originally rigged as a gaff cutter and was converted to a Bermudan sloop in the 1970’s.

After a life full of activity with a number of owners, early 2011 Lona had been out of the water for several years and needed a caring hand to bring back her beauty.

We found her in 2011 at Tradewind Yachts in The Netherlands, in Walsoorden at Tradewind Yachts. Most of Lona’s hull and deck was original,but the superstructure and interior were not.We engaged in a thorough restoration with all respect for Lona’s pedigree and straightforwardness.
