Yacht: Mariline

Submit Information on this Yacht

Originally named ‘Skeaf’and built to the First International Rule for Consul Henry Horn, she took part in the 1914 Europe Week at Oslo.   H Rasmussen was at the helm and came away with six prizes.   With the coming of the First World War ‘Skeaf’ was sold to a Norwegian yachtsman, Glad, who owned her until around 1924.   When RC Schmidt bought her in 1926 she was converted to a gaff yawl and renamed ‘Treudeutsch’.

Then in 1929 she was bought by the Club Nautico of Portugal, renamed ‘Mariline’ and based in Lisbon.   She was converted to a bermudan yawl around 1942-1944, taken to Germany and used as a ‘school yacht’ entering many regattas and winning many trophies.

In 1989 she was sold to a shipbuilder who intended to have her restored.   Unfortunately, he started the job badly and left the boat lying in the yard and searched for a new owner.   Albert Alfonso came to the rescue in 2000 and started a restoration programme.
