Jubilee SY233 is the last surviving example of a sgoth Niseach - Ness type skiff - that participated in the once prosperous Hebridean line fishing industry. The boat is also the last sail powered vessel to have made the 80 mile round trip to Sula Sgeir rock for that other Ness tradition - the annual 'guga' hunt, where young gannets are culled and salted before being taken back to Ness and sold as a local delicacy. Following extensive renovations and the fitting of modern safety and navigation equipment during 2005-06, Jubilee enjoyed a new lease of life that offered the public an opportunity to sail in and enjoy a truly unique and historically important sailing vessel.
