A classic Motor Yacht, designed and built by William Osborne of the Arun Shipyard, Littlehampton in 1964.

Osbornes were fortunate in receiving orders to build lifeboats for the RNLI and they incorporated this high standard of double skin construction to their range of cruisers from the 1940s to 1960s. The bird theme continued with single or twin engined cruisers, hard-chine designs from 25ft to 50ft. These included the Swift, Osprey, Falcon, Kestrel, Martlet and Eagle. The Eagle Class was first launched in the late 1940s as a round-bilged displacement cruiser. The design was revised in the late 1950s to incorporate new styling and semi-planing hull with smart modern layout and powerful twin engine installation. Six examples are known to have been built between 1960 -1964.

GEORINA, formerly SHANNON PRIDE was built for W T Lancaster of Walton-on-Thames, he kept her at Birdham Pool in Chichester Harbour. This was his second SHANNON PRIDE, the first a 34ft cruiser, also built by Osbornes in 1960. This vessel was part exchanged with Osbornes and re-named SUSINA.

In the mid 1970s GEORGINA was sold to H A Jenkins of Redland, Bristol, who continued to cruise from Birdham Pool. In the current ownership GEORGINA has been the subject of a complete refurbishment bringing the vessel up to a high standard throughout. Recommendations from a 2014 survey have all been carried out.

Double skin, close seamed mahogany hull, copper fastened to steam bent oak timbers. Underwater hull cascover sheathed from new. Raked straight stem, flared bow sections, divided transom stern, long straight keel, hard chine bilges and long straight sheer. Teak laid deck over marine ply, varnished mahogany superstructure.

Lying afloat in Falmouth - she is seriously for sale and we would recommend a viewing.
