Type: 48ft Bristol Channel Pilot Cutter

Designer: Cockwells | Replica of the Pilot Cutter, Peggy

Merlin is three feet longer than Peggy to provide a larger saloon and workshop space.

Crafted over two years, we followed traditional methods, constructing her hull from an oak frame and larch planking cut from the round, and casting bespoke bronze fittings to the highest standards.

Merlin’s build was featured over seven monthly issues of Classic Boat magazine in 2010.

Her owner uses Merlin for corporate and private charters, wildlife expeditions and charitable work in the UK, Brittany, the Baltic and further afield. You can read more about her here.
