HISTORY & DESCRIPTION:

FORTUNA  II, designed by Frederick R Parker is an attractive Gentleman’s Motor-Yacht built in 1959 by Nunn Brothers of Waldringfield, Suffolk.

Fred. R Parker (1912–1984) affectionately known as FRP established, after the Second World War a solid reputation for sail and motor-craft – both racing and cruising. During the 1950’s and 1960’s he was the favoured naval architect at Moody’s with over thirty yachts built to his designs at Swanwick.  FRP’s motor-yachts have attractive, pleasing lines and are sea-kindly capable vessels and as such are much sought-after.

Nunn Bros. established in 1921 by brothers Harry and Ernie on the River Deben have a good reputation as traditional wooden boat-builders with the business now run by the third generation of the family.

 

Fortuna 11 was built for Graham MacAndrew of Bury Hill, Woodbridge and was launched in August 1959 and registered the following June, classed Lloyds A1, grade 15.  She remained in class until October 1973.

In the late 1960’s Graham sold Fortuna 11 to The Orwell Charter Company, who were based in Ipswich. The original 54hp Lister Blackstone diesel was replaced in 1973 by the present Man Diesel.

The charter company kept the vessel at Burnham on Crouch until 1975 when she was sold to Woodford Litho Ltd of London.  A few years later R V Fox of Spanbrook, Essex acquired Fortuna 11 keeping her throughout the 1980’s in Burnham.  During the 1990′s John Trafford of London owned the vessel keeping her in Brighton Marina.

Acquired by the current owners about ten years ago the vessel has been on the River Severn navigation and in more recent years the Exeter Ship Canal.

OWNERS REMARKS:

From the board of the well known and respected designer Frederick Parker and built by the excellent yard of Nunn Bros. of Waldringfield,Fortuna II is truly a beautiful example of a classic ‘gentleman’s motor yacht’ Originally constructed to Lloyds 100A1, she is an extremely comfortable and strongly built yacht with good sea-keeping ability. She was further improved at the outset by the bespoke inst
