Canadian Bluenose off to Scotland.

By / 13th January, 2017 /

Our best selling yachts are probably the J Class Yachts, but there is usually a story surrounding purchases of the Canadian Bluenoses as noted today. Our buyer asked if the Bluenose could be gift wrapped and also if we could include the description of origin on a card in the packaging. In fact, we liked his suggested description more than anything we could write and it was along the following lines ………….”one for the die-hard salty seadogs of Canada where the boat originates. The Canadian Bluenose was a fishing and a racing boat built in 1921 and an important Canadian symbol in the 1930s. Bluenose was in fact a nickname for hardy Nova Scotians in the 18th century. We think their blue noses would have had more to do with the weather than the whisky”.
