Altrica : Star Of The London Boat Show, 2016
Altrica has undergone a three year restoration in Cornwall that culminated in her being exhibited at the 2016 London Boat Show. She's a stunning tribute to the skills of the workforce at Falmouth's Maylor Yacht Harbour. The quality of the restoration was made clear in an article in the February 2016 edition of Classic Boat magazine. Following her boat show appearance, Altrica was again in the news when she was damaged in an arson attack on a barn adjacent to where she was being stored. In consequence she is, unfortunately, again having to undergo restorative work. One of her twenty-three sister boats, Inismara, is currently (November 2017) for sale with the Sandman Yacht Brokerage.
