This show will also provide an opportunity for the brand to continue the celebration of their 50th anniversary.

Founded in 1965 as Marine Projects, David King and two friends started the business with a Senior 31 hull and deck moulding to fit out in their rented shed at Newport Street, Plymouth.

This original yacht ­ the Project 31 sold for £3,400 and marked the birth of a prosperous new Plymouth shipyard.
