AR19-20 Pellew Launch - 595


Booking Enquiry Form

Every so often there comes a chance for us to take part in the launch of something significant. A new business, a project, or even a marriage. Launching boats is like all of these rolled together and more. We will remember the day that Amelie Rose was launched for the rest of our lives, it's something really special and being part of that is an experience not to be missed.


The launch of Luke Powell's new build, The Pellew, promises to be something even more special however. This is the largest wooden gaff cutter to be launched in the UK for over 100 years, but she is already so much more than just a boat. She lies at the heart of an incredible project designed to establish a new traditional boat building and sailing community in the heart of Cornwall. 


Amelie Rose will be sailing down to Cornwall to join Luke's own boat Agnes as an honour guard to welcome their sister Pellew as her keel touches the water for the first time. Come rain or shine it's going to be a magical weekend and one that none of us will ever forget - a truely once in a lifetime experience.


Join us as we spend a few days sailing in company with Agnes, exploring the local creeks and havens before heading up river to Truro to lie alongside the quay for a ringside seat as Pellew touches the water for the very first time. There's always a great party afterwards and you'll be amoung the first folks to set foot aboard what is bound to become one of the most iconic ships in a generation - a story to tell your grandkids!
