Having commissioned Jack Giles to design Andrillot the very first Vertue, Peter Kinnersley returned to 'the great man' who commissioned builders Elkins for the sixteenth of the class – a bermudan slutter for his good friend Peter.
Records show that unusually for the time Peter fitted a folding propeller. A note in the file describes Meulette’s interior layout as unorthodox, we don’t think that it was repeated on any of the later yachts.
Meulette was reported stolen in 1959 from Barbados, sailed to Cartagena, Columbia, and sold. As far as we know she has not been seen since.
