This 1930's pond yacht has a lovely "wineglass" shaped hull. It was carved from solid, hollowed and then fitted with a hardwood deck. The long keel lead ballast is screwed direct onto the hull.
The standard of the workmanship suggests that it was sold by one of the large stores of the 1930's Gamages, Hamleys or Bonds of Euston Road.
The cream paintwork has a few marks and there is some paint loss on the keel. The deck is in good order with its original deck fittings and varnish. There is a faux hatch.
The gaff rig appears to be original but does need some attention. The sails are fragile and the mainsail has 3 tears. The yacht could be displayed as she is or the sails could be used as templates for a new set.
Overall the yacht is a great example from the 1930's but she would benefit from some attention.
The yacht is offered at a price commensurate with her condition.
The stand is oak but is not as old as the yacht. It is included in the sale if required.
