Yacht: Bonita

Submit Information on this Yacht

Previously named ‘Helen’.

As she was built as a yacht she has a fiddle bow instead of the spoon bow that Crossfields gave to their working boats. Bonita is believed to be the only surviving Crossfield boat with a fiddle bow. Originally cutter rigged Bonita was converted to a yawl in the early 20th Century.

She has been owned by the Beckett family since 1938 and is kept on the Swale.
