British Powerboat Company Boats Review and Specs

Year: 1941  
Manufacturer: Hamble Office
Price: £50,000
(US$80,275)  


Designed by the ‘master craftsman of marine architects’, George Selman, ‘Whaleback’ MASB 32 was ordered under contract CP51253/39 dated 8 Sep 39 under the war emergency programme as a 70ft MA/SB (MASB 7 – 39 = 33 boats). When MASB 6 (1938 programme) ran trials in Dec 39 her performance was “disappointing”. As a result of trials with the first 63ft for South Africa (Which was completed as a MASB and did trials for the RN at Portland before being completed as HSL 141) the Admiralty decided to stop production of the 70ft MASB. The British Powerboat Co stopped the 70ft boats after MASB 21 and built MASB 22 – 39 as faster 63ft boats. Theese boats (like ’32) have the bridge and a shorter superstructure further aft than the 63ft HSLs’ WARTIME HISTORY 32 was laid down in 1939 by The British Power Boat Company at their Hythe yard. However she was not completed and launched until 24th September 1941. She was originally configured as a Motor Anti Submarine Boat, hence MASB and was given the Service Number 32. Her original Yard Number was, 1571. She was subsequently configured for air sea rescue work. June 1942 edition of The Motor Boat and Yachting On page 139 of the June 1942 edition of The Motor Boat and Yachting 32 is shown with S32 painted on her foredeck. The accompanying article relates to a trip undertaken by journalists on several boats including S32. (We assume that the reason she carries the ‘S’ prefix (S32)is because of the ASDIC.) The text in part reads: ?These motor boats are now primarily employed by the Navy for rescuing airmen from the sea. They are of the by now familiar 63-ft Scott-Paine type, manned by two sub-lieutenants R.N.V.R. and eight naval ratings. Nearly half the hull is occupied by three Napier engines; the crew sleep aboard and the officers ashore. Working in conjunction with these craft are R.A.F. boats of the 60-ft type, their turns of sea duty alternating? The article probably had to have been written in April or May to have made it into the June edition. So ? it would appear that 32 had the prefix ?S? very early on in her service life and whilst used for Air Sea Rescue work. There has been some debate as to what the ‘S’ prefix was for, I doubt special operations would have been ‘advertised’ on her hull, It may have been that the ‘ASDIC’ was fitted as with other boats sporting the ‘S’ or perhaps that she had three engines fitted when the norm was two. MASBs 22 to 32 were originally ordered as 70 foot boats with MASBs 7 to 21, but due to the performance figures of the 70′ boats they were built as 63 footers as were MASB 33 to 39. Also MASB 40 and 41 originally ordered for the Sweedish Government as T1 and T2 later requisitioned by the Admitalty as were MTB 1-4 ordered by the Norwegian Government in 1939 which were converted to MASB’s 42-45 In the year September 1939 to September 1940 BPBC produced 136 boats. From October 1940 to September 1941, 150 boats. October 1941 to September 1942, 112 boats. Peaking at 210 boats in the year October 1942 to September 1943.
