Unfortunately we have very little information about Poppy and we’re keen to hear from her current owner so that we can complete her description.  She’s clearly a beautiful Vertue built to the classic design that pre-dated the introduction of the Mk II modifications.



Poppy is a fine example of a classic modern Vertue.  She looks as if she was built to the drawings that were used by boat builders all over the world from the early 1960’s onwards.

Poppy looks as if she was substantially built at the International Boatbuilding Training College in Lowestoft.
