Glen-Coats, Sir Thomas, Bart.

Pallas, Clyde 30-Footer. Mr. T. C. Glen-Coats

A member of the famous yachting family, the Coats of Paisley. He was created a Baronet in 1894, at the same time assuming the additional name of Glen.

Sir Thomas has been an ardent supporter of Clyde yachting. He owns the 11-ton cutter Cruiser and the s.y. Hebe. The Cruiser, which he raced with considerable success, was built by Fife in 1886 to G. L. Watson’s designs. She was built as a cruiser, having rather more beam than the 10-tonners of the period and being the same length. She proved remarkably fast, however, and has taken part in numberless races on the Clyde.
