Iverna CK17 Gill built 1888

IVERNA is the last surviving example of a Medway Bawley. These small fishing vessels were once common around North Kent and Essex, near the mouth of the Medway and the Thames. They were used for fishing and particularly for shrimping. IVERNA was purchased by her current owners in 1986, using a PRISM grant. She was bought under exceptional circumstances to protect the last surviving example of a vernacular Medway boat. She is now located at Chatham Historic Dockyard.
