"Greyhound" is one of a range of yachts made in the 1930's and sold through the famous London store Gamages.

This particular yacht was, until recently, part of the Richard Howard collection at Beale Park. 

She has a hollow hull with a separate hardwood deck, wooden keel with lead ballast. The very decorative pale green paintwork is original but this yacht has been sailed so there are some marks on both sides of the hull and a small area of damage on the keel.  Please look at the photos to see the condition and if you require any others please do not hesitate to ask. There are gold name transfers on the bows which have faded. The rudder is brass.

The deck is in really good condition with all original fittings and cut plank lines. There is a Gamages name plaque at the stern, the characteristic Gamages faux hatch cover, and the London Made stamp just aft of the mast. The varnish is also original and has a lovely colour.  

The sails are original and in very good condition for their age. There are just three very small holes and a few stains. The spars are original but she has been rerigged at some point.

However, overall the condition is very good indeed considering her age. 

The stand is relatively modern but suits the yacht well and is included in the sale.

This is a pond yacht which is very evocative of the early 20th century era.
