Serif is one of the few Vertues that has remained in the United Kingdom since she was constructed nearly 70 years ago. She is the only Vertue built by this Essex yard who also built the two Laurent Giles ocean racers Scythe (1962) and earlier Rosette of York (1957)
Planked in Elm on grown Oak frames, she is fitted with an iron keel. Her profile is with the short cockpit, short doghouse and was built with the original slutter rig design, with wooden spars, boom-kin and runners. Design changes were made to the standard cockpit layout during construction.
