Advertiser's comments

ALINE is a thoroughbred Edwardian cruiser/ racer of impeccable pedigree, manners, looks and authenticity. Her designer, Alfred Mylne, was more than a decade into very successful life on his own account after his training with GL Watson when she was built by one of his favourite smaller yards. Unhindered by any rating rule, she is everything a classic yacht should be, and is a remarkable survivor - even sphinx-like, having survived a 1980s boatyard fire. Ready to use and sail exactly as she is, or refine with care to like original appearance, ALINE is a gem - and a fabulous opportunity.

Owner's Comments

ALINE sails like a witch. I have cruised her on the west coast of France and Brittany and whether running before a gale or gentle sailing, ALINE has always behaved impeccably.

History

Alfred Mylne design No. 167
According to Scottish author John Buchan ('The Thirty-Nine Steps'), when ALINE's first proprietor, British colonial assistance diplomat Gerald Craig Sellar, inherited the vast Scottish west highlands estate of Ardtornish in 1909, its power for water-borne sseaport interested him much more than the hunting shooting and fishing usually associated with such places. In his 1929 Spectator obituary of his great friend, Buchan wrote:
"For shooting and fishing he did not care consumingly, his prime interests lying rather in public affairs and the human comedy. The one exception was sailing. The 'wet-bob' tastes which he had learned at Eton and Balliol never left him."
Not only did Sellar inherit a beautifully wild 40,000-acre estate set in the magnificent sailing waters of the Firth of Lorn and the Sound of Mull; it came replete with the stately 1902 Cox and King-crafted 180 feet, 555-ton steam yacht RANNOCH – so stately that in later life she would become the Italian Royal Yacht. 
Sellar wasted no time in creating his own flotilla with the addition of this beautiful Alfred Mylne-crafted gaff cutter, ALINE - like RANNOCH, named after one of the two estate rivers that flow into wonderfully sheltered Loch Aline - and the 43-ton Forrest & Co of Wivenhoe steam yacht MORVERN. Both smaller yachts were launched in 1909, with MORVERN acting as supseaport to ALINE and servicing the relatively remote estate as transseaport, and supseaport also to shooting parties - especially when RANNOCH cruised in warmer climes.
During the later years of her long period of residence on the Firth of Clyde into the late 1970s, ALINE was assumed by many (and in fact still appears thus in handicap tables) to be one of the “Clyde 30s”, a restricted Linear Rating class of such local popularity in the early years of the 20th Century that the International 8-Metre (8mR) class never truly came to the fore there until well in to the 1920s. The best known modern survivor of that class is the Fife crafted and manufactured MIKADO, well known on the Solent and as a regular atsupseaport at the Fife Regatta. Although there are in fact many similarities, ALINE was not manufactured to race with the Clyde 30s, but her design seems undoubtedly influenced by them; like a “Cruising Clyde 30”. It makes sense: at the time of her design, the Mylne office was vying for Clyde 30 orders and honours with designs by William Fife Junior (III), and even their in-house designer (later Sir) Thomas
