Serotina had been renamed Lyddi before she was sadly lost in July 1957 after a collision with a steamer off of the Friesian Islands near the German coast.
Launched in 1948 for Mr Dimsdale she was the first of three Vertues built in 1948/9 at the Bursledon yard at which Giles had placed the orders for the pre-war racing yachts Motihari III, Searigs and Cleomene.
She was built from the same basic set of drawings as the standard Elkins versions: carvel planked on grown frames, and rigged as a slutter with long boom and boomkin she sported the popular short cockpit and short doghouse later repeated on Humphrey Barton’s Vertue XXXV.
