In 1945, the journalist and well know children’s author Arthur Ransome, commissioned Jack Giles to design a replacement for SELINA KING. The design was to take only minimum effort to sail and yet offer the ‘maximum comfort for two’. ‘PETER DUCK’, as she was called, was launched in 1947, named after Ransome’s third book about the ‘ancient mariner’ which had just been published.
