'MORAYSHIRE' was built in 1947 at Messrs Herd and McKenzie's yard at Buckie, for Messrs Joseph, Daniel and Henry Farquhar of Lossiemouth. She was not altered in 40 years, apart from the addition of a Decca Navigator and a replacement stove. 'MORAYSHIRE' is still afloat, privately owned and used as a house boat on the River Thames.
