This pond yacht is one of a range of yachts made for Gamages in the 1930's.
She has her original maroon paintwork above the waterline and varnish below. The deck has its original varnish with plank lines. The paintwork has that wonderful crackled effect which happens over time.
She is fitted with a mahogany "swinging door" rudder which may not be original.
This yacht has been sailed so there are marks both on the hull and the deck. Please have a good look at the photos.
The sails are original but have a number of small holes and some paint marks.
All the rigging has been renewed but the bowsies, hooks etc are all original.
The spars are original although the bowsprit may have been replaced.
The stand is made of mahogany but is not as old as the yacht. However, it is very pretty, and is included in the sale if required.
This yacht is very decorative example from the heyday of pond yachts.
