The FLYING FIFTY was designed in 1950 for Gerald Ross for cruising the Carribean. She was built in Scotland, overseen by an up and coming naval architect Colin Mudie.

She has recently changed hands via a broker in Florida.

'We have recently sold the "Flying Fifty". The new owner has all intentions of bringing her back to her original appearance. I suspect he will be contacting you for information to assist him to that end. The "Flying Fifty" has generated more inquiries than any other vessel we represent. Should you be aware of others available, please contact me. Best Regards, Phil Austin, FCM Yachts, Florida.'
