The former Canadian Navy patrol tender YAG 320 tied up in Victoria Harbour. She was originally built as YFM 320 in 1955 at Withey’s Shipyard on Gabriola Island. She was later reclassified as YAG 320 and served to train naval officers, naval reservists, and sea cadets until she and her 5 sisters were replaced by the new Orca-class training vessels in 2007. She was sold to private owners for $11,378 in 2011. A photo of her while still in naval service can be seen here:

Nice. When I was in Sea Cadets (1983-1986) we'd go out on the YAGs for weekend trips

Thank you, Andrew for posting. After serving well for 5 decades,they will begin a new life. Like many young canadians, back in theseventies, I spent 6 summers on these YFPs (YAG). So, it means that one day, as an old man, I will, perhaps, have the opportunity to see my youth.
Andrew, for all of us that served, keep track of these vessels for us.
Best regards, Christian, EX CO YAG314 1978-79.

Thank you, Andrew. These are handsome little vessels. I rather preferred them in naval livery, however.
