A 12 ton sloop or smack, the "Brothers" was built in 1822 by the Harris family at Aberarth, a small village at the mouth of the river Arth just north of Aberaeron in Cardiganshire. The Harris family remained in buisiness at Aberarth until 1846 when a cloud burst up on the Mynydd Bach turned the Arth into a raging torrent, washing the shipyard, a chapel and some houses into the sea. The Harris family moved to Aberaeron and continued to build ships there for another two decade.
