Provenance: Sir Harold Dudley Clayton

On Saturday 5th May 1900, The Field described her launch as follows ‘The first boat of the Bristol Channel one-design was launched last Saturday. The boats of this class are 10 tons measurement and have been built at the new yard of the Penarth Yacht and Boat Building Company. Before leaving the ways the new boat was named Coquette; she appears to be a fine, able, little sea boat. The interior arrangements are good, and the cabins very roomy for a vessel of the size; they are fitted in teak and canary wood panelling. The Bristol Channel one-design class are from lines by Mr Harold Clayton.’
