Built in 1904, by Charles E. Nicholson, the Merry Maid sailing yacht was designed to be a racer in the category of Big Class Yachts. Merry Maid had her first race on June 11, 1904 at the Dover Race where she was widely appreciated by the crowd for a combination of high speed and comfort.
Racing against other Big Yachts like White Weather and Veldoral; Merry Maid went on to win the King’s Cup in presence of King Henry VII. Her owner Hardcastle sold her, only to buy her back in 1908 and transform her into a Ketch in 1911.
