V 54 Pamela Jean



Pamela Jean is one of the earliest Vertues to be built with two windows in her doghhouse.


Pamela Jean is a pretty typical Elkins’ built Vertue of the period excepting for her handsome laid teak deck.  But she has another unique feature.

We think that the entirely logical wheel steering is unique aboard a Vertue and neatly helps to overcome the problem of their rather small cockpits.

A very handsome wheel!
