The Clyde 20-ton class was originally commissioned by the Clyde Corinthian Sailing Club to a design by the great Alfred Mylne – the renowned designer of many race-winning boats. Of the five yachts built by Mylne for this class, only TIGRIS survives.
In 2001 TIGRIS underwent a complete restoration in the south of England. Details of this refit are hard to come by, but a huge amount of good quality work was done, including to the structure, and the addition of a new deck, new rig, and new deck furniture.
Mylne’s yachts were known for their outstanding seaworthiness, with a good turn of speed in a stiff breeze. Today, TIGRIS is proof of Mylne’s timeless design, winning in her class in St Tropez in 2013.
In 2014 the current owners decided to give her a new lease of life, and sent TIGRIS to the famous Brittany yard of Chantier du Guip in Brest. Renowned for their expertise in all aspects of wooden boat construction, they proceeded to strengthen and upgrade her structure.
Work included (but was not limited to) the rebuilding of the stem, the fabrication and fitting of new bronze floors, the addition of a new mast step laminated in Iroko with stainless steel strengthening, and the rebuilding of parts of the bulwarks. A full list of works is available for interested parties.
Now for sale for the first time in many years, TIGRIS represents a great opportunity to purchase a vessel in near original configuration, in excellent condition, and capable of continuing the regatta-winning tradition for many generations to come.
TIGRIS can accommodate four guests, with one in the forecabin and three in the saloon.
