THE SECOND SNARK was designed and built in 1938 by Wm Denny and Company at their shipyard on the River Clyde and launched by Patricia; younger daughter of Sir Maurice and Lady Denny for use by the shipyard as a tug / tender. She was also used by the Denny family for summer family outings. Working for the shipyard summer and winter from 1938 to 1963, she was a well regarded vessel on the River Clyde. Ownership transferred to Denny-Brown in 1963 and the vessel became a test platform for the development of ships stabilisers. Later; purchased by Clyde Marine in 1969 she has been operated as a day passenger vessel.
This project's funding will allow for the purchase and complete rennovation back to her former glory. The interior how ever will be a newly reformed vessel comprising of Guests cabins and bathrooms for up to 8 guests along with crew quaters for a Captain and Chef.
On completion of the refit, the vessel will be re-homed in Palma Mallorca where she will be chartered out as a pleasure vessel around the island. With an estimated launch date of 1st JULY 2018 when supporters of the project will be able to then book their reward trips/days for the summer ahead, enjoying cruises around the island onboard the 'Second Snark' in all her Glory.
Shortly after we reach our much needed goal a website will be created to give a real-time viewing platform of progression of the project including the ability for funders to come visit should they wish.
