Holly Mae

Holly Mae is a 35 foot gaff cutter, traditionally built by Joff Rorke of larch planking on oak frames. The design is inspired by the West Country work boats of around 100 years ago, though there are influences of Falmouth Working boats, Falmouth Quay punts and Pilot Cutters. The hull is deep, like a quay punt but she’s cutter rigged, more like a working boat or pilot cutter. She was built in Gulval and launched at the bottom of the hill in Penzance in 2010. Since then, Holly Mae has crossed the Atlantic, spending a winter in the West Indies and the last two years exploring the Baltic.
