This Vertue has we believe carried the most name changes of all of the wooden Vertues that have so far been built. When launched in 1949 she was named Katarina. Then Katrianna, Kristina, Winston C and most recently Vertuoso.
She was fitted with the larger Stuart Turner 8 h.p. inboard engine and was of the same basic ingredients as Wraithe and Eleanor of Poole – Planked in Mahogany on grown Oak frames, long cockpit and short doghouse with the sloop rig.
