The Royal Lady was purchased by Win Gurney, A Pontiac dealer in Syracuse with a home on Cherry Island. The boat was originally named Win Lee. The current owners family purchased the boat from Gurney in 1976 and re-named it Royal Lady in honor of Royal Lalonde from Hutchinson Boat Works, who took care of the boat for many years and had a deep love and appreciation for wooden boats. She has been kept in the same boathouse since relocating to Round Island in 1976. Though she has received a few upgrades including a replaced engine, and hand carved wooden scoops, this boat remains largely original and in excellent condition and one of the best known examples of the popular and attractive post-war 26ft Utilities. One of the best features of this design by Glen Furness was the hard chine that was integrated into its traditional round hull, improving the boats stability but preserving its smooth ride. Being an expensive boat to produce Hutchinson only produced a few of these hulls each year, making the 26ft Utility rare and quite desirable.
