Falka is one of the very few motorboats designed & built by famous William Fife & Sons of Fairlie. Originally designed as a tug boat for RAF seaplanes, she served for the Navy before having plenty of other duties, such as being commuter boat, mail boat etc. Acquired as a wreck, this unique boat had her hull and deck restored with respecting classical boat building skills. When finished, the boat will serve as a regatta support launch or as a committee boat for sailing events.
