Ness yole Iluna Ivy
Intheboatshed.net reader John Lamb has kindly given me permission to put up these photos of the wonderful Ness yole Aluna Ivy, which appeared at the 2008 Scottish Traditional Boat Festival at Portsoy. See the programme for the festival here and take a look also at John’s excellent galleries of Scottish traditional boats.
The Scandinavian influence in Aluna Ivy is unmistakeable: notice the lack of ribbing, the high ends and the almost casual way she’s framed with partial frames here and there. She could almost be an architectural find – but she was built in 1993.
There is a Flickr photo set of one of another of these striking boats being built here.
