Beautiful boats last a long time, but ugly ones die young. That is one reason why there are so many Alfred Mylne designed yachts still sailing, even though some of them are well over 100 years old. It was in 1896 that Alfred Mylne, at the age of twenty-four, set up his yacht design office in Glasgow and the company is now one of the oldest British yacht design firms still in existence. Boat design features which are widely believed to be quite new are found in early Mylne designs and between 1896 and 1920 Mylne designed several beautiful, race-winning yachts. Alfred Mylne yachts still turn heads today, even in San Tropez or Antigua.
