THELMA VI was built in 1952 at the renowned yard of James Silver and sons at Rosneath on the Clyde. Silvers had built a solid reputation for their boat building skills from the late 1920's under their chief designer, naval architect John Bain.
THELMA is an Ormidale class boat, which was available in size from 48 to 72 feet, and produced from about 1950 to 1972 when production ceased at the yard
Very few 72ft Ormidales were produced and THELMA is possibly the last surviving "Bain 72 ". Although her wheelhouse and saloon roof were ‘modernised’ in the early 70's she still retains much of her original character and style.
THELMA has proved herself as an exceptional sea-boat on corporate charter - a steady platform for film work and event viewing with her trusty Gardner diesel engines and Vosper Maxi Fin stabilizers – she can cater for 12 guests for day charter and 6 for longer cruises. The accommodation boasts 6 berths in 4 cabins and a large double crew cabin forward.
