The 25.96m yawl rigged, Mutin is the oldest vessel in the French Navy. She was built in 1926 in the shipyards of Florimond-Guigardeau in the region of Sables d’Olonne of France and launched on 19 March 1927. Like any tuna fishing vessels built in Sables d’Olonne, Mutin is traditionally rigged, however she never served as a tuna fishing vessel.
Mutin is photographed here off Duncannon, County Wexford, During the 2011 Tall Ships race visit to Waterford.
