Margeurite of Lymington was constructed as a standard Elkins Vertue with short cockpit, short doghouse and slutter rig and a boomkin. She was fitted with a Morris Vadette engine and according to Laurent Giles office notes had an elaborate electrical installation which included a fan assisted exhaust.
Later she was renamed Margeurite of Poole and was based in Lymington for many years throughout the 1960’s and 70’s.
In late 70’s she was owned by Michael Else who was one time director of the design practice and the main driving force and protagonist who in 1977 funded the Vertue Mk II project.
Marguerite’ was last heard of under the ownership of John Begley in Canada in 1994 and it is believed that her home port is West Vancouver.
