The yard of James N Miller of St. Monance in Fife, Scotland was at one time synonomus with the building and repair of all shapes and sizes of commercial and leisure craft. In business for 250 years the company diversified into the production of a range of leisure craft in the late 1950’s all produced along the lines of a traditional Scottish MFV, built to a yacht finish. At one stage more than 25 new leisure craft ranging from 28’ – 43’ were being launched annually.
