V 13 JESSICA (Ex Vertue Celia, ex Corran, ex Frea)





Jessica was built to the ‘Monie’ drawings as Frea, at Primmer & Snook, just across the Hamble river from where Andrillot was built in 1935.   At least two other Vertues were to be built to the drawings, without doghouses, in future years.  One was already in build and the other was soon to be built but was later altered.
