REVLIS, the famous John Bain motor cruiser which was built in 1939 at the John A Silver (Silvers) yard in Scotland, is to be sold for the benefit of Sail 4 Cancer.

Revlis (Silver spelt backwards) is a fabulous piece of British maritime heritage. The 1939 John Bain designed motor yacht is one of the most famous motor launches to have been built at the Silver yard in Rosneath, Scotland. In an act of immense kindness, the boat’s owner is selling her for the benefit of the sailing charity Sail 4 Cancer.

Revlis began life as a tender and live aboard cruiser for the owner of a classic racing yacht (possibly a J-class). Whilst her lines are very similar to those of the Rosneath Standard 45, Revlis was given six inches more beam.

During the war, Revlis was employed by the Royal Navy as a degaussing vessel on the River Clyde. Commissioned on the 22nd of June 1942 as HMS Revlis, she was used by both Flag Officer Western Approaches (Vice Admiral Sir Richard Hill KBE CB - Retired) and Rear Admiral Combined Operations (Rear Admiral H.E Horan DSO – Retired), before being paid off in February 1947.

Sail 4 Cancer was set up in 2001 by a group of keen sailors who had all lost a close friend or relative to cancer, Sail 4 Cancer is primarily a provider of water based respite days and breaks for families affected by cancer. The charity also makes grants to cancer care centres and funds research into the positive effects of exercise (e.g. sailing) and how it can help prevent cancer and aid recovery post diagnosis. Sail 4 Cancer is run by a dedicated team of sailors from its offices in Newbury.
