Our JustGiving campaign raised £2860. That's a long way short of what we'd hoped, but it definitely helps to get her to somewhere safer and the very fact of the Facebook, website and JustGiving campaigns together has gained us some finance, some supporters and a possible owner/restorer.

Thank you to everyone who has helped, whether financially or by supporting our efforts. We are making progress and will continue to do so.

Tally Ho Is In Danger

Tally Ho Is An Important Historic Yacht, But Is Threatened With Destruction If We can't Rescue Her. Urgently.

A Yacht Worth Saving

The yacht Tally Ho is an important historic British vessel, designed in 1909 by the great Albert Strange as a powerful cutter yacht for the owner of one of the first steam trawler fleets in Britain.

She was built for him to ‘cruise in comfort while indulging in deep-sea fishing’ by Stow & Son of Shoreham under Lloyd’s survey to the highest class.

That heritage gave her the beauty of an Albert Strange design with the power and seaworthiness of a pilot cutter.

Amongst her many achievements was winning the 1927 Fastnet Race in near storm conditions where only two yachts of the fleet managed to complete the race.

A Rare Opportunity

Tally Ho represents a now very rare opportunity to restore a most capable classic cruising yacht. Few restorations of this quality and pedigree remain today.

Tally Ho needs much work, but the restoration is feasible and achievable
