Similar to this vessel although she looks German built, however a bit of a coincidence on the photograph slide itself, in the top left hand corner it mentions 'Lady Margaret' which just happened to be the name of the Boat when my Uncle owned her.
Thank You Cueball for your continued help in researching her whereabouts.

The vessel is named 'Lady Margaret'. That's why I asked.

Doesn't sound like yours, but you will know if it is.

Back to the original question about the newbuilding, officially registered as ABLE ONE OF WHITBY, currently cruising in Croatia, with owner still listed as Andrew Whalley.


As for "why" of the newbuilding, the answer lies in this article on the 2009 hull survey:

https://derij.co.uk/news/marine-eng/27-65-tug-survey

It concluded that the intended lengthening involved in the yacht conversion would be complex, and expensive, whereas a near replica would not only provide the additional length but could be made a little more beamy:
original: 21.3oa x 5.9m
new: 26.75oa x 7m
