Located at her berth in Mystic, Connecticut, the Bermuda cutter Rose of York fulfills her description as a "powerful cruising yacht of character." Built in 1952 in Arklow, Ireland by John Tyrrell and Sons and designed by Laurence Giles and Partners of Lymington, England. She has been well maintained and meticulously cared for throughout her life, and is in excellent condition and form this season. The current owner has rebuilt her step by step and has made a point of performing preventive maintenance throughout his tenure of the last 48 years. Powered by 40HP Yanmar (new 2004, and less than 40 hours), garboards recently replaced (2018) and other structural issues taken care of from replaced laminated oak frames, refastening to new iron floors. Well appointed above and below decks including Raymarine autopilot and other navigational instruments.

Rose of York is a true bluewater yacht with established pedigree, having made numerous long passages including three transatlantic crossings. She presents herself as an impressive example of a classic wooden yacht. Rose of York is thoroughly ready and equipped to cruise anywhere.
