That was from "Craigs Database of Norfolk Boats" which is on this forum.   I think he was getting confused with the original Woods Perfect Lady class of yachts built in the 40's.  Unfortunately I believe he is no longer with us to confirm or deny that!  The yacht we owned was exactly the same as Cresta Donna, but built in 1970. After we owned her she was bought by Camelot Craft in Wroxham, renamed Guinivere and hired out for a couple of years before being sold again and moved to Lowestoft.  I really enjoyed sailing her.

Is there one that moors at Horning Hall at the top of the Dyke certainly looks like a Cresta.

It is definitely a Cresta boat.   I think it was a privately built one called ASAPH  that someone decided to put a bowsprit on.  I think before it was sold it was kept on Hiokling.   Richeldis which was built by Bernard of the Cresta yard for himself is at a bungalow near the yard and is wintered in Martham's sheds.

I am sure that Asaph was sold as "A Cresta Maria "class boat.  but it was built for a private owner.    Guinievere was originally called Nefertiti
was built for someone keen on Egypt and even sailed there.  We found here in Sandwich and transported her to Norfolk, but because she was built for deep sea sailing, she had a keel of $ft 6inches and we had to take a foot off!   We named her OLE,  taken from our surname which is Hole.

Cresta Donna has small iroko planks and lots of ribs close together unlike the others so this I guess is the same as Guinevere/ Ole? Have you got a picture of her?
