Boaters are being urged to keep a lookout for a long keel ketch that was stolen from Holyhead Marina, Wales.

The Vindo 38 has a white hull and varnished topsides.

The name is ‘FRAM III‘ but the owner is unsure if it is printed on the vessel or not.

A spokesman for Holyhead Marina said: ‘The 38ft Vinto ketch was stolen any time in the last two weeks. It was in the marina tied up. It had so many lines on it, it would have taken half an hour to get the lines off at least.

‘We’re in the process of checking all the Irish marinas, covering anywhere it could have got to.’
