I know the whereabouts of three of Herd and Mackenzie trawler yachts,
Andvari, Arvor 11, Astra Volante, (now Leonor 11). Can anybody help with
any history on these three trawler yachts plus any information on the
whereabouts of any of the other 12 please.

Skomer , ship no 199 has been in Australia since 1987 and we purchased her in 2003. We have been fixing her up since then and she is looking pretty good.She is largely original and we are trying to keep her that way. Last year she sailed from Sydney to the Whitsundays Islands in the Great Barrier Reef and back. The major projects this year have been repairs to the topsides and a complete repaint .
