Welcome to 'Virgo' a C.G. Pettersson design

'Virgo' is a classic wooden launch designed by the renowned C.G. Pettersson of Sweden in 1925 and now fully restored to her former glory by the craftsmen at Clare Lallow’s boatyard at Cowes on the Isle of Wight.

Throughout the 20th century and into the 21st century Pettersson motor launches gained a reputation for durability as well as for outstanding design. Many of the boats that were designed and built by CG Pettersson still survive, all of them unique. Over the past 14 months 'Virgo' has been lovingly restored to her former beauty at Clare Lallow's on the Isle of Wight.

Looking at her gleaming mahogany planks and sparkling fittings, you would find it hard to appreciate that this vintage launch is nearly 90 years old.

With so few Pettersson launches for sale, particularly in the UK, 'Virgo' is a very attractive proposition for anyone looking to acquire an excellent example of C. G. Pettersson's work.
