Solway Maid For Sale

Design influenced by the Metre Classes, built on spec 1938, sold in 1940, and laid up for the duration of WWII.

The last of the real Fifes to leave the Fairlie yard. 1940-1974 SOLWAY MAID was owned by F. Ivan Carr and sailed in Scottish waters extensively, maintained in original form, except for replacing the tiller for a wheel steering. She remains the least altered of all Fife’s designs, and a formidable competitor on the Med racing circuit.
Solway Maid is of significant historical importance, being as she is the very last yacht to be designed by the great master William Fife III and also built at his yard at Fairlie. After his death the yard continued to exist, but never again was the combination of his design genius and master craftsmen found in the same vessel.
