Lustre is the oldest boat in the Fleet having been completed in early May 1932. She unfortunately lost her keel during a hiring and later, in the mid-1980’s, she was restored and the topsides re-planked in iroko instead of mahogany. She has been hired out every season from 1932 except during the war years from Aug 1939-1943 – so about 5,500 have enjoyed holidays on her.
Luna was the first of our Lullaby Class yachts to have the peak halyard and topping lift brought back to the cabin top. Now, all 4 of our Lullaby Class yachts a rigged this way. Since being built over 5,400 people have enjoyed holidays on her.
Lullaby was the second boat to be built by the Hunter family and was completed on 13th May 1932 a few days after Lustre. The log of the maiden voyage is available to read in the yard. Lullaby became Teasel for the BBC when Arthur Ransom’s Coot Club and The Big Six were filmed in 1983. The transom of Teasel is still at the yard. Over 5,500 people have enjoyed holidaying on her since being built.
Lucent was built by Graham Cooper and the yard staff at Ludham between 2001 and 2007; following a design by Percy Hunter. To cater for taller customers, Lucent was built with 6ft 6in bunks, rather than the standard 6ft 2in. She was launched during the 10th Anniversary celebrations of the Norfolk Heritage Fleet Trust on 30th September 2006 and was completed on 13th September 2007. Joining our hire fleet in 2008.
