The McGruer Lorne Class Yachts, their history and architecture

by Douglas Cawthorne

Scotforth Books, 2013.

softback. 403 pages + 46 pages of illustrations. ISBN 9781904244950

established in 1911 on the shores of the Gareloch in the Firth of Clyde, the family run firm of McGruer & Company Ltd created some of the finest sailing yachts ever built in Scotland. The smallest of these were the Lorne Class, designed in the 1960’s by James McGruer as ‘affordable’ family cruisers. at 28-ft LOA, not only did they have the thoroughbred lines and renowned sea-keeping qualities of their larger cousins, but they were one of the last and best examples in small cruising yacht design of the centuries old woodworking skills and traditional plank-on-frame construction which had made the McGruer yard famous.

Using original documents from the McGruer archive and first-hand accounts from builders and owners, this newly published book tells the story of how and why the Lorne Class Yachts were conceived and constructed, the men and women who sailed them, some of their more adventurous voyages, and their continuing importance within the world-wide revival of classic yachting
