Jeunesse Awaits A Letter From the Queen
John Wright’s woody – Jeunesse, built in 1919 (most likely) by Dick Lang has hit the ton, she turns 100 this year and John is in the process of giving her a wee tart up, which any old girl of this age deserves.
John is a master craftsman’s who has the eye and skills to turn a woody from a good looking woody launch into a stunning classic launch.
Jeunesse measures 39’, with a beam of 11’ and draws 3’. Tucked away down below is a 180hp Hino so when asked she can lift her skirt and dance 😊
