Jura, yacht no 6

from a photo by Ian G Gilchrist
Jura was built by the Bute Slip Dock Company in 1930 for Thomas Dunlop Junior, Member of the Royal Northern Yacht Club since 1919, 50 Wellington Street, Glasgow and the son of Sir Thomas.

In 1934 she was bought by Mrs Bergius, passing to Adam Bergius in 1946. See his greetings post for some of his experiences aboard Jura.

By 1978 she is shown as registered to Allan Foster. For many years thereafter she was based on the Forth and sailed there latterly by Alan MacKenzie.

Adam Bergius had her successfully converted for cruising by Freddy Mylne and she still has this configuration, but is in need of a rebuild. She awaits a new owner at Lowestoft Boatbuilding Training College.
