Lottie is a triple keeler and is normally kept on a half-tide swinging mooring  in Chichester Harbour.

She is now a masthead sloop with a Beta 14hp diesel auxiliary engine.  She was formerly known as Stella Maris and had a seven-eighths rig and has previously had a Vire 6 two-stroke and a Bukh 10hp diesel. See her history here.

She was moulded in 1970 by Marine Construction at Woolston in Southampton.
