Launched in 2003 from Luke’s yard in Gweek, Cornwall, 46ft Agnes was built along the lines of the original pilto cutter for St Agnes in the Isles of Scilly. Orginally built for an American owner, after her launch she was prepared for an Atlantic crossing to take her to new home. The plan was that she would work with young people.
In 2006 Luke and Jo choose to buy her back and bring her home to Cornwall. Luke with three close friends flew to America and then sailed her home.
On her arrival home to Conrwall Agnes stepped into being ourWorking Sail flag ship. Spreading the word about what we do and also giving prospective new owners the opportunity to sail one of Luke’s recreations.
After launching Freya summer 2012, Luke and Jo decided to launch Agnes as a charter boat in Summer 2013 and share their love of their boat and Cornwall, Isles of Scilly and Brittany. She has taken guest crew sailing every summer since then and is a well known boat around her home waters of Falmouth and the Carrick Roads.
Traditioinally rigged with the ability to fly up to 5 sails, if the weather allows there is plenty to keep the crew busy. With a comfortable thwart that runs the full width of the boat steering the boat is an enjoyable experience.
She has cruised extensively and we enjoy our summer expeditions further afield. Every summer she does regular weekend voyages exploring her home waters around Falmouth. Then for those looking to sail further afield she will sail to the Isle of Scilly and the North Brittany coast. She has also done expedition to explore Northern spain, Southern Ireland and Western Scotland.
Luke and Jo pride themselves on exploring the quiet and unspoilt anchorages and sailing whereever possible. There is little better in life then entering an anchorage under sail and all you can hear is the splash of the anchor as it goes over the side.
She is comfortably set up below decks. Forward of the mast she has 6 guest bunks in shared accomodation. Perfect for solo sailors, couples and groups with one heads (marine loo). There is no shower onboard but we will always endeavour to get you to one ashore whenever we can.
Then as you head back there is a comfortable saloon with heater and compact galley where the mate/cook will produce delicious home cooked fare for the voyage.
There will always be a skipper and mate/coook onboard for your voyage. Luke and Jo will not always be onboard as the fleet grows but meet who could be onboard
