Alfred Mylne & Mylne Yachts
Alfred Mylne was a Scottish yacht designer. Born in Glasgow in 1872 he was apprenticed to the shipbuilders Napier, Shanks and Bell.
He then worked as draftsman to G.L. Watson, where he was involved in drawing up the plans of the Royal Yacht “Britannia”, a magnificent racing cutter that was first owned by the Prince of Wales (later King Edward VII) and which later passed to his son, King George V.
In 1896 Mylne set up his own business which almost certainly makes the firm that still bears his name the world’s oldest yacht design business in continuous production.
Mylne immediately established a reputation as a designer of winning yachts that were much admired for their elegance.
