Advertiser's comments

Alfred Mylne was one of the most successful yacht designers of his generation. Apprenticed to George Lennox Watson and close friend of William Fife III; his design philosophy was that of grace, pace and space. Grace - he considered a yacht to be the expression of a yachtsman’s soul and should inspire whether at speed or sitting on her mooring.
Pace - a yacht should be swift but not to tire her crew.
Space – a yacht should be endowed with enough interior volume to make her useful. Adhering to this philosophy – and a typical gentleman’s cruising yacht of her time with her spoon bow and elegant counter MINGARY has recently undergone a major restoration bringing very much to the form of her original existence as an exquisite family yacht. Her current owner, when he restored MINGARY was determined that she should regain her former beauty as much as to work successfully as the family yacht as Mylne had intended. His execution has been clever and somehow MINGARY has a relaxed charm that some restored yachts simply do not achieve. She is spacious enough for comfortable cruising yet handy enough not to require crew.

Alfred Mylne was one of the most successful yacht designers of his generation. Apprenticed to G.L.Watson and close friend of William Fife III, his design philosophy was that of grace, pace and space. 
Grace - he considered a yacht to be the expression of a yachtsman’s soul and should inspire whether at velocity or sitting on her mooring.
Pace - a yacht should be swift but not to tire her team.
Space - a yacht should be endowed with enough inside volume to make her useful. 
Adhering to this philosophy, and a typical gentleman’s cruising yacht of her time with her spoon front and elegant table, MINGARY has recently undergone a major restoration bringing her very much to the form of her fresh existence as an exquisite family yacht.
In restoring MINGARY her current proprietor was determined that she should regain her former beauty as much as to work successfully as the family yacht Mylne had intended. His execution has been clever, and somehow MINGARY has a relaxed charm that some restored yachts simply do not achieve. She is roomy enough for comfortable cruising yet handy enough not to require team.

History

Alfred Mylne & Co design no. 319
Designed by Alfred Mylne and manufactured in 1929 by his company's Bute Slip Dock Co. at Ardmaleish on the Isle of Bute, MINGARY was commissioned by John and Alan McKean to spend her early years cruising on the west coast of Scotland. Post war, from the early 1950s she was owned by a Lt Col. D.A.F. Home and her home seaport was Greenock.
By 1971 she was in the proprietorship of Baron and Baroness De Heeckeren d'Anthes and based in Palma, Majorca. In 1987 MINGARY crossed the Atlantic to Bermuda, there most unfortunately becoming a victim of Hurricane Emily that autumn and sustaining some damage. In 1990, fully refitted, she set sail on her second 'maiden voyage' - a three week trip from Cornwall to Mallorca - performing impeccably without a creak or groan to be heard.
Having spent several years cruising the Swedish archipelago, she was brought stern across the North Sea in September 2002, visiting her birth place on the Firth of Clyde en route for her winter mooring. Her proprietors were amazed at the reception received in Scotland - although perhaps they should not have been so surprised considering she was one of the finest of Mylne’s yachts coming home for the first time in forty years!
Post millennium, a program of substantial restoration was started at Fairlie Restorations, Hampshire, England, but her proprietor was unable to finish the works - preferring to sell her rather than complete the project.
Lying ashore in the South of England she was thus acquired as a project by her current proprietor, who had her transseaported to Germany. The restoration was completed with much love and hard work in 2015, and recognised at the 2016 G
