A Summary of Sailing Yacht SOLWAY LASS

The well proportioned superyacht SOLWAY LASS is a sailing yacht. This 37 metre (121 ft) luxury yacht was manufactured by Bodewes Scheepswerf in 1902. SOLWAY LASS was once called Stina; Adolf; Solway Lass; Bent; Sundeved; Lawedua; Tui-Na-Savu Savu. This balanced boat has been designed with naval architects G. & H. Bodewes.

SOLWAY LASS was originally built in 1902 and was then named Stina. In 1905 she was sold and renamed to "Adolf", while she worked in and around the Baltic and North Sea. In 1915 the yacht was seized as a prize of war by the British and used as a Q-Ship during WWI. At the end of WWI, she worked as a coal, produce and stone carrying vessel between Liverpool and Scottish Ports. In 1924 the yacht was again sold – this time to a Scottish firm in the Solway Firth where she was renamed Solway Lass. When WWII broke out the Germans seized the yacht a s a prize of war where she was used to supply their armed forces. During the war SOLWAY LASS hit a mine and was badly damaged, however the Germans repaired the hull because SL was useful as a sail-powered icebreaker. After WWII she served in the South Pacific as a Cargo Vessel. In 1983 an Australian businessman purchased SOLWAY LASS in Fjii. From 1983 to 1985 the yacht was rebuilt and in 1988 took pride of place in the 1st Fleet re-enactment of the Tall Ships into Sydney Harbour.
