Notes

Most VERTUES were built by different firms in England. Cheoy Lee built a few in the late 50''s and early 60''s. Some were built later in FG. The designed was changed significantly since the earliest boats of the 1950's so dimensions listed here are only approximate. It is thought that approximately 100 have been built to this design.
