Originally built for Stafford Bourne, Isla Rose has been in the same family ownership since 1967.

"A 58' long twin screw yacht was launched from the shipyard of Messrs Jones this week. It has been built for Stafford Bourne Managing Director of Bourne and Hollingsworth an Oxford Street, London, store. The yacht, which was christened Eila Rose by the owner's wife, has accommodation for 8 person and is superbly fitted out . The new vessel will be powered by a 127 hp Gardner engine."
