"Rosamaria" was built for Mr John Goldie who later co-founded "Tollesbury Marina" in Essex. She remained in the Goldie family until 20 years ago when her present owner purchased her. She is a fine sailing yacht with typical Holman lines and pleasing sheer. Her owner describes her as a traditional heavy, strong boat, at her best in a good blow. She has served the present owner well over the years and she will be missed dearly but tells us that age catches up with us all so now they are looking to downsize. Under previous ownership, Rosamaria sailed to the Baltic and to Santander and under present ownership has sailed between Scotland and Falmouth and over to Holland including the inland waterways. She is in commission afloat. Last survey 2014. Two of her sister ships are cruising in South America, a classic bluewater yacht with excellent British craftsmanship standing her in good stead for the future.
