Although not built at the time the new designs were drawn for Mr Scahill in 1948 for this gaff rigged ocean cruising version of the Vertue design. Mr Scahill was a resident of New Zealand.
No sail number was attributed and as far as we know the licence to build this yacht was not passed to a third party.
As well as the gaff rig, the design changes encompassed an increase of free board and after this time we see the use of a different table of offsets which made the extra allowance for an additional hull plank in the topsides. This was used on among others Speedwell of Hong Kong (V 44) and the later which bore the class name – Vertue (V 63) which was also for a New Zealander.,
