“The only one of the hundreds of so-called Dundee Tunnyboats to have survived”.

Her fishing career ended in 1957, and she became a training ship for the Royal Belgian Sailing Club in Zeebrugge. After a stint in Channel charters, she returned to Brittany in 1991 as a museum piece, but proved too costly to maintain and was abandoned in the mud at Port-Rhu.

Saved in 2004 when she was restored at the Guip yard of Lorient, South Brittany. Currently (2013)  used as a charter vessel.
