Among the prewar owners of the Little Ships are many prosperous personalities of the 1930s. Reda was built for a Mr. Austin Reed - for many years thought to have been the head of the successful clothing firm of that time. However recent enquiries have discovered that the Austin Reed who commissioned Claude Whisstock to design his comfortable 45ft yacht at Woodbridge, Suffolk in 1938 was in fact the owner of a chain of 5 public houses in London.
