With nine Vertue yachts under construction 1949 was a very prolific year for the construction of this class of little offshore cruising yachts; Virtue was the name given by Primmer & Snook to this speculative project during construction and her keel was laid shortly after that of Frea (V 13) late in the previous year. Although she didn’t remain on the stocks for long her number shows she was not officially commissioned until after Serif (V 28) later in 1949
She was built from the same plan set as Frea: carvel planking on grown frames, short cockpit and doghouse, and with the slutter rig with boom kin.
She has been renamed Zest, Patience and is now most famously called South Stoneham, we have only three listed owners including The School of Navigation, Warsash Southampton.
