Old Clyde yachts image image image image imageHi
I have information on Narija 1946 yacht
She came up on a web site
The boat is in DRB Boatyard in fine shape. http://www.drbmarine.co.uk/
There were a couple of photos posted #2&4 and a comment by Ian Clark

Photo’s 2 & 4 are of Narija a 1946 36′ Silver designed by John Bain – amongst UK classic motor boat enthusiasts these are the the best you can get, from the best designer. The sailing rig – if any – on these would have usually been more for steadying, but useful if the wind is in the right direction. The 1969 Lloyds Register has her then with twin 2 cyl 16hp engines, I suspect would have been upgraded to about twin 50 hp engines by now. Hull speed would be more like 9 knots. Prop size fairly typical – my 1951 vintage 30′ with 105hp engine (way over powered though) had a 19 x 17 prop, plus wing engine, plus steadying sails, all fairly typical of the era.

You can see the name Narija on the back. Beautiful condition.

Unfortunately there are some other boat in poor shape probably Clyde Built too
Who has time to find the boat and document in photos before they disappear ?

above sent to the clydeships register.


The old James a Silver yard is just a little further up the river from DBR
