Commissioned for Colonel Whitbread of the long established brewing family; LONE FOX was appropriately named for a rather private person and former amateur jockey with a strong interest in fox hunting. Built in early 1957, in the same shed as Americas Cup challenger SCEPTRE, she was Colonel W H (Bill) Whitbread's personal yacht for a quarter of a century. For a while he sailed and occasionally raced on the English South Coast. In due course however LONE FOX was taken back up to cruise the beautiful Scottish waters out of Badachro. From here there were frequent cruises around the West Coast and Hebrides typically a fortnight at a time.
Colonel Whitbread himself, inspired no doubt also by his long standing good friend Francis Chichester, was to become the sponsor of the famous round-the-world race. LONE FOX routinely wintered back in Robertsons yard and it was in 1977 as she was about to be put back in the water that the launch carriage broke free and the boat accelerating down the slipway snagged a stabilising stay snapping the main mast. Fortunately the damage was limited. Colonel Bill was to continue sailing her regularly right up to the age of 81, when reluctantly he had to sell her.
From 1981 under the ownership of Talbot Smith she was based in North Wales and raced regularly in the Irish sea, taking part also in Tall Ships Race. In 1985 she took part in the West Highland Yachting Week Regatta.
In 1986 Keith Ehlert from California bought her for chartering out of Antigua and by 1990 she was in Marina del Rey in California for restoration. Teaming up with Christopher von Trampe, by 1997 Keith abandoned the project and Christopher acquired the yacht.
For the next 5 years LONE FOX underwent a major restoration, pretty well throughout bringing her back to original condition but with the exception of alloy for the wooden masts. With this work complete she went to St Barts in 2003 for chartering and a year later for sale.
