Troy Class Yachts

The Troy Class Yachts are a familiar sight on the water on the Fowey Estuary. The first Troy yacht was built for the daughter of Sir Charles Hanson of Fowey Hall, who commissioned the boat for his daughter. Designed and built by local Fowey boatbuilder Archie Watty the Troy is an 18’ boat, with a lead keel, and was an immediate success on the water, leading to more orders and more Troys being built.

The large fleet of Troys is a regular sight on the estuary and will race during Fowey Regatta Week.
