vintage yacht Project Boats Review and Specs

Year: 1915  
Manufacturer: Wooden Ships
Price: £16,000

A rare survivor, now almost 100 years old. Designed by Cox and King, built by Beazley and Kemp, Southampton in 1915. 45′ x 10’9″ x 5′. 20TM A very interesting design concept which suits so much of modern boating requirements so well. She has a large cock-pit, well sheltered behind the raised deck. Varnished teak coamings run forward with side decks to the midships step in the deck and cabin entrance hatch. From the cock-pit there is an almost full height doorway into the full width walk-in engine room with a water and gas tight bulkhead to the accommodation. Access to the cabin is by a hatch midships port side. Below the flush deck there is full head-room with a pair of cabins right in the middle of the ship against the engine room bulkhead. Forward of the cabins is a large saloon using the full width of the ship. Forward again is a galley to port and a heads compartment to stbd with a crew cabin in the focsle. The interior joinery has been carefully removed while the hull is rebuilt but the great benefit of this vessel is the survival of her original polished mahogany panelling. Planked in pitch-pine below the water-line, mahogany above on steam bent oak timbers. Long oak keel with long external 2-ton lead ballast keel. The deck is laid in a very close grained, possibly Kauri, pine caulked and payed with varnished mahogany cover-boards. Varnished teak sky-lights, entrance hatch and fore hatch. Masts stepped in galvanised tabernacle on the deck. Bought by the present owner 20 years ago in Weymouth and motored to Dartmouth, hauled ashore and covered. Work commenced by carefu removal of the original interior joinery. All the frames have been replaced in twin laminated oak, bronze screw fastened to the planking. The wooden keel was replaced in oak, 2″ thicker than original thus slightly increasing her draft and lowering the ballast keel. Manganese bronze keel bolts with phosphor bronze nuts. New forged steel floors throughout, hot zinc sprayed and refitted carefull insulated. New pitch-pine garboards. Several damaged under water planks replaced in pitch-pine. New internal stringers. New side deck beams. Underwater hull recaulked, repayed and painted. New engine beds, fastened with forged silicon bronze. New stem, deadwood and breast hook Shaft and stern tube removed and reinstalled. New prop The counter is in process of rebuilding. Lots of original gear. Everything removed preserved in storage including capstan, ground tackle, railings and some new timber for the deck. Old Perkins diesel in place but probably no longer viable. This is a very interesting project with an extremely worthwhile end result. She will be a very useable, practical and manageable classic which is bound to attract a lot of interest.
