George Watson
was born in the city of Glasgow in 1851, the son of Glasgow doctor he grew up in the heart of the Clydeside maritime industry. During his childhood a passion for yachting developed and as soon as possible after completing his apprenticeship he formed the world’s first dedicated yacht design office; still in business today.
Over the years the company of G.L. Watson has only had 6 managing directors, each bringing their own unique skills to the companies offering. Under the leadership of William Smart who lead the company between 1958 and 1968 the company ventured into the design of MFV’s for the Scottish fishing industry. During what was a boom period for the industry the company became highly respected for their designs with all yards in Scotland producing G.L. Watson designed vessels.

The Jones of Buckie yard was synonymous with the building traditional timber-built commercial vessels for the Scottish Fishing Industry, launching thousands of new hulls since the company’s formation in 1918. The Jones built MFV’s having a loyal following in the fishing industry the yard gained a reputation for building high-quality robust vessels capable of working for many decades in the most arduous conditions.
Along side, the production of commercial vessels the yard also built a number of small craft in the same traditional style for pleasure use including their own range of ‘Spey Class’ motor sailors and the last two traditional Loch Fyne skiffs.
