Golden Orfe Tender

This Fife of Fairlie built tender was made for a Mr Wilson of Greenock in 1932. It would have been used to ferry passengers to and from the moored Golden Orfe.

The Industrial Revolution gave rise to the middle classes who had time and money to sail on the Clyde  - many turned their attention to commissioning yachts to raise with and cruise in.

Like her parent ship this tender is expertly built by a yard renowned for building first-class yachts. She is an excellent example of this type.
