I bought the Mary A in about 1994 when she was lying in Hall’s Boatyard in Walton on the Naze. She was built in The Royal Navy Dockyard in Alexandria in Egypt in 1947. She used to race in Malta where she was registered as a British Ship and was then transported overland to Essex where she sailed until I bought her.
I have sailed her the whole length of the European coast from Harlingen in The Netherlands to Corunna in Spain. I have also sailed her the length of the British coastline from The Orford River on the East Coast to Mull in Scotland returning to the South Coast via Northern Ireland, the East Coast of Ireland round as far as Cork and then The Scillies.
I attach two photographs, one of the Mary A on the right racing another Yachting World Five Tonner called Joelle and one of the Mary A manoeuvring before a race in one of the early Cowes Classics.
'Mary A' was built to Robert Clark’s design. I can send you some plans published in Yachting World in the 1940s if you think that would be usefully added to the listing.V
May A sleeps three in two saloon berths and one port aft quarter berths. Reasonable galley area and heads.
