Provident is a gaff ketch Brixham Trawler. She began life as a fishing vessel in 1924 sailing out of Brixham for six years before being bought by an American owner and converted to the yacht that she is today. She has changed little since then – an engine, a few more berths, some upgrades to heads and galley – but on deck she has retained her original rig.
Since her conversion she has mostly been owned by sail training charities, latterly Trinity Sailing, and she has been at the forefront of the sail training movement with a long history of making adventure sailing accessible to all.
Angels Share Sailing Holidays bought Provident in March 2022 . She has needed some restoration work and following a few months in Cornwall is now based on the west coast of Scotland. A winter refit is planned for 2022 and she will begin taking guests sailing from April 2023. Destinations include the Scottish Hebrides and inland lochs.
