HISTORY & DESCRIPTION:

During the mid 1930's William Osborne senior drew up plans for a new motor-yacht design to be known as the Swallow Class. The design included features of the period with a flavour of Art Deco styling and lots of chrome fittings. The class was re-designed a few years later with the Swallow Senior, of which probably the most well known is Naiad Errant, the famous Dunkirk Little Ship.

Skitawit 11 was built for R J Weeks of Wanstead, London also owner of another Osborne built vessel Eagle of Arun, an Eagle Class 40ft Motor-Yacht.

Carvel mahogany hull on steam bent oak timbers, all copper fastened. Oak centre-line, pine decks, mahogany superstructure.

Twin Volvo MD 2030D Three cylinder 29hp diesel engines fitted new in 1998. Serviced April 2016. Two 80 litre fuel tanks. 240 volt shore power. 12 volt electrics. Trim tabs. Bilge fans. Four 12 volt batteries, 2016.
