Broker's Comments

Oooh! What a magnificent yacht . A splendid and hugely stylish "classic" yawl from the other side of the pond. This is how the Americans did it in the '30's.

She was re framed ( including new Y frames) and re fastened in the late 1990's. She is now again in re fit and new decks and a new interior is being fitted.

The price shown reflects the yacht with a restoration completed to a sailable level.

November 2010: UPDATE

The boat is now nearing completion with most of the interior fitted, all mechanical parts ready to go and new rigging throughout including new masts.

There are pictures here in two formats. The large ones are the after shots and the smaller ones are the before shots.

This boat is now very much for sale, the work has finished and can be completed exactly to your requirements.

The racing history of this yacht is second to none and will be detailed shortly in our blog section so watch this space.
For updates, please contact Boatshed Falmouth.

Currently lying in Cornwall.

Offers on the asking price will be considered but the price does not come close to covering the money spent so far!
