Russell Marine Ltd.
1959-1980

Founded by Des Pollard who began building the ENTERPRISE, ALBACORE AND GP14. In 1960 the 19' ALACRITY was introduced. At first they were built of molded plywood but after a year GRP hulls were produced.
(Earlier ALACRITY models were built by Hurley Marine.) Soon afterward, an extended version called the Vivacity 20 was built, available with either twin or fin keels.
In 1963 the VIVACITY 20 was further extended to produce the VIVACITY 21/650 (6.5m) The VIVACITY 24 came along in 1973/4, again available as a fin or bilge keel model.
All these sold well. About 600 Alacrity's and Vivacity's were shipped to the US.
In 1975 Russell Marine made an arrangement with US builder, Catalina Yachts to build some of their models under license and selling them in Europe as JAGUARS. (JAGUAR 22, 25, 27, and 30). The Jaguar Car Company took them to court about the use of the name but lost.
Russel Marine built it's last boat in 1980.
