In 1991 the original owner paid the deposit to Orion Marine in Falmouth for a Rustler 36 that was to become hull number 56, “Artemis of Lleyn”. In 1992 she was displayed at the Southampton Boat Show. Her first season of use was 1993.
During 1995 she did a circuit of the Atlantic and cruised in the Caribbean. After that she was in the Baltic for three years and cruised as far as the Russian border in Finland to the East and the Aaland islands in the North.
In 1999 the boat was transported by road from Pwllheli to Hartlepool. The transport company have the loading plan and a photo on their web page.
In 2003 Artemis was sold.
In 2012 the boat was sold a second time. There then followed a long and extensive refit in Whitehaven (Cumbria). The electrical systems were rebuilt, new heads and plumbing installed, gas system upgraded, teak decks removed. Chris Dobson from ChrisDobsonMarine did a lot of the work including a complete rebuild of the engine after it failed in autumn of 2013. He has posted a video to YouTube of the engine rebuild. Her new owner renamed her “Pennyblue”
In October 2016 the boat was in Ardfern (Scotland) and once again for sale.
In 2017 we bought the boat, commissioned works to complement those done in 2012/13 and returned her to her original name – because deep down renaming a boat doesn’t “feel right”.
