This substantial yacht was, until recently, part of the Richard Howard collection at Beale Park.
She dates from the 1930's and has a hollow hull with a separate hardwood deck. The hull has a wonderful "wine glass" shape with long overhangs on both the bows and the stern. She has a long keel with lead ballast. Overall she is very similar to the early long keel yachts made by Alexander of Preston.
The paintwork is not original and is poor. It is suitable for distressed display or it could benefit from being restored.
The deck is varnished but again it could be renewed. Please look at the photos to see the condition and if you require any others please do not hesitate to ask.
The deck has original fittings including Braine steering and an fully adjustable mast foot.
The sails are egyptian cotton and are in really good condition for their age. The spars are original although the bowsprit may have been replaced at some point.
The stand is oak and is beautifully made. It really suits the yacht.
With her lovely lines and gaff rig this striking yacht would make a wonderful decorative/distressed display. Alternatively the paintwork could be renewed to return her to her original condition.
