Imagine being the owner of this beautiful boat and running a business that allows you to take people sailing – people who enjoy her just as much as you do.

Well you can…
Amelie Rose is a Replica Scilly Islands pilot cutter (2009) currently based on the Beaulieu River, Hampshire, UK
Forty six Scillonian pilot cutters worked out of Scilly in the 19th century, but all were broken up by the 20th century. Boatbuilder Luke Powell has renewed this line of powerful and sturdy cutters with their trademark lute sterns and heavy scantlings for a new generation of seafarers to experience.
