Grayhound is a 5/6ths scale replicate of a lugger built in 1776 by John Parkin, a boat builder from Cawsand, Cornwall. This 158 ton lugger has a slight mystery to its full history, however, it was known to be used as both excise and privateer vessel. The owners intend on using Grayhound for charter work world wide and also period film work.
