The IC/R 8 metre built in 1955 to a design by James McGruer



Namhara : Eight Metre Classic, Netherlands Based
Namhara is stationed in the Netherlands as can be deduced from the ensign worn in the above photograph. She relocated there in the early 1990s and was treated to a full restoration. Another photograph, below, shows off the resulting beautifully varnished hull. There are several other McGruer eight metre yachts on the HBA website such as Inismara, Altrica, Camellia Of Rhu and Nan Of Clynder.
