Based on a classic
design by Morgan Giles chief designer Kenneth Collyer, the design was approved
by F C Morgan Giles before his death.
The first, Genesis, was built of wood and sailed in the 1964 Cowes Week. GRP
moulds were produced and production eventually transferred to Somerset Plastics
where some 70 were made for home completion before production ended in 1996.
This one was completed by the owner of a woodworking business in Essex. She is
completed with teak deck and cabin sole. First commissioned in 1990 she was
kept in Brightlingsea before purchase by the current owner in 1997.After a
refit in Ardrossan she was sailed extensively on the west and north coasts of
In 2005 a new Beta engine was fitted and the owner set off on a single handed
round Britain cruise.
In 2007 she crossed from Shetland to Norway, cruising the west coast including
Hardangerfjord. She wintered in Stavanger then in 2008 sailed to Gothenburg,
through the G?ta Kanal to the Baltic, cruising Swedish, Finnish and Estonian
waters, finally wintering in Austenborg in Denmark.
In 2009 she sailed back to Norway and cruised in the south west before crossing
back to Lerwick and then on to the west coast of Scotland and her home port. Of
Whitehaven from where i have sailed for the last two years I have recently purchased

for a couple or a single hander wanting to just cruise wherever the wind takes
them.i have sailed petronella in all kinds of weather she is a stabile strong
vessel i have refitted her to take part in the jester challenge this year but since i have bought a bigger boat and
changed my plans
