History

CAYENNE is a Bermudan cutter, built by James Miller at St. Monans, Fife, in 1938 and designed by Robert Clark. Her hull is carvel built with mahogany planking, oak frames and elm ribs. Her superstructure and decks are made of teak. She has a counter stern and a moderate spoon bow and has been Cascover sheathed below the waterline. Mechanical propulsion is by a Perkins 4.108. She offers accommodation for six people, with standing headroom throughout. She was named CAYENNE by her first owner, Dr. Pepper, and has been used full-time since her launch. Voyages, travelling over fifty thousand miles, have included a three month trip to the Azores collecting plants for Kew Gardens; a two year voyage round Africa in commemoration of the 500th anniversary of the first European rounding Southern Africa; a one year expedition to the Caribbean for the 500th anniversary of Christopher Columbus’ first voyage, and a visit to Edinburgh to celebrate her own sixtieth birthday.
