V II grp 22 Flame of Avon

We have almost no information about Flame and think she may be based near Rome in Italy.  We are very keen to hear more about her.



Flame of Avon is an interesting grp Vertue because she appears to have been fitted out by Elkins of Christchurch who built more wooden Vertues than any other yard.  She has what look like teak ‘sheerstrakes’ from the photographs and her interior also looks as if it has been well finished with plenty of solid wood.



Nicely finished saloon
