Grayhound Lugger

grayhound lugger


Quba Sails is a pround sponsor of the Lugger 'Grayhound', a faithful replica of a traditional three-masted Lugger originally built in England in 1776. Grayhound represents the realisation of a dream shared by partners Marcus Rowden and Freya Hart. After initially conceiving the idea in 2010, Marcus and Freya began working alongside a team of skilled shipwrights at a shipyard in Millbrook, Cornwall, using age-old shipbuilding methods and responsibly sourced materials to re-create a classic vessel that would be a joy to sail.


Now finished, and fully fitted out for the coming season, Grayhound will start sailing in May 2013. We are very proud that she will be flying the flag for Quba (literally - we will be supplying a custom-made pennant!) and we will be following her travels with interest. We're also very pleased to be supporting Marcus and Freya who, together with their little boy, Malachi, make up a delightful family team. With years of ocean sailing under their belts, they're ideally placed to offer a unique, expert-led experience aboard their distinctive, truly beautiful vessel.
