Fire Queen is one of the first batch of six mouldings of the 'Sylvie' affordable hull. Fore and aft decks, gunwhales and front & rear seats were installed by Roger Hall at Penarth. The hull was then purchased by the current owners early in 2015, who completed the fit out and installed the machinery. The first sailing was on the river Tees in August 2016.
