Possibly the best example of the popular Miss Silver class of Motor Sailor built by James Silver of Rosneath, Scotland. Melissa was extensively refitted in 2003-5 by the Ocean Yacht Company in Cornwall to a very high standard. She is a genuine head turner and the constant subject of admiring comments. A wonderful little ship, beautifully presented and full of the heritage that the "Silver" yard bestowed on all the vessels it built between 1910 to 1970. An absolute pleasure to view.
Recently launched in April 2017 and ready for the season.
