Die Historie

Pilot Cutter

Eve owes her heritage to the pilot cutters of the Isles of Scilly. Rugged and versatile craft built to withstand the rigours of the Western Approaches in comfort and safety; these little ships were fast, weatherly and immensely strong. Built in 1997 by Luke Powell of Working Sail, many people mistake Eve for an old boat; such is the sense of history within her solid new timbers. Constructed entirely traditionally from the best materials available, Eve was built to last. She has been admired, photographed and written about countless times.

Built and Designed by Luke Powell, Working Sail.
Launched April 1997 in Exeter Canal Basin.

Ekki keel, oak frames, larch planking, Douglas Fir Mast and bowsprit. The hull is fastened with copper rove nails and the seams are caulked with oakum. The deck seams are pitched. There is a lead keel as well as internal ballast.

Shipwright Luke Powell

Eve was the first pilot cutter replica built by Luke Powell. He went on to build 7 more pilot cutters – Lizzie May, Agnes, Hesper, Ezra, Amelie Rose, Talulluah and Freja. You can read about the designer and builder in his book Working Sail – My Life in Wooden Boats
