Agnes

Agnes is a Pilot Cutter built by Luke Powell. After extensive research, Luke built her to the lines of the original 1841 Agnes, the leading Pilot Cutter from the Isles of Scilly. Her dimensions are 46ft on deck, 13ft 3in beam, 8ft 6in draft and a displacement of 26 tons. The original Agnes had a long working life, ending her days as the last Cutter to work out of the islands, under Captain Stephen Jenkins, whose grandsons Alf and Harry helped launch the new boat in 2003. She is based in Cornwall, under the ownership of Working Sail and run as a charter vessel by Luke and Joanna Powell. Her usual sailing grounds are around the Celtic shores of Cornwall, Brittany and Southern Ireland, showing people the pleasure of traditional sailing and giving them a real taste of life afloat.
