Camellia Of Rhu : Restored & Raced Classic For Sale
Camellia Of Rhu's current owner, Bryan Robinson, travelled to South Brittany in 2005 when he knew she was for sale. At that time she was ashore and in a shed in the Morbihan Gulf region of France. Once purchased a major restoration was undertaken that included replacing many of the underwater hull planks. Camellia Of Rhu is currently for sale through the Wooden Ships Brokerage for £43,500. One of the other thirty or so IC/R 8 metre sister boats, Inismara, is also currently (April 2018) for sale.
