The finest addition to the Royal Vancouver Yacht Club in 1934 (from Boats & Harbors June 1934 edition). This ship is the first of Robert Allan Sr. line, ultra high quality of the day, built as a ship then well appointed as a fine yacht. Teak, Cypress and Glasgow bronze with a Gardner diesel and 2000 mile range.

A historic ship, FY11 during WWII equipped with a 50 Caliber Gun then a Missionary Vessel during the 50's working the West Coast of Vancouver Island and Greenpeace IX in 1977.

Meander is an ocean going yacht and a fantastic coastal cruiser large enough for comfort and small enough for exploring and tight anchorages. Best of show 2005 Victoria Classic Yacht Show.
