Ibis is an East Coast Oyster Smack of timber carvel construction with pitch pine hull and an inboard diesel engine by Kubota. She was originally built in 1888 for The Whitstable Oyster Company and worked the oyster grounds for about 30 years. When bought by her previous owners in the 1970’s Ibis needed extensive work and it took seven years before she could go for her first sail. Since then, she has been kept in sailing condition and in 2003 completed an Atlantic crossing where she won the Spirit of the Regatta Cup in Antigua. Today, she lives in Penryn and is used to ship Petrel Rum to events around Cornwall, Isles of Scilly and Brittany. She is owned by Elle Demaus.
