Our friends over at InTheBoatShed.net have pointed out a couple of listings of older boats that are available for sale right now. I normally don’t do many of these, but one in particular caught my eye.

If I was anywhere close (it’s in Lymington, Hampshire, United Kingdom) I would have to try for it, I think. Needs lots of work, but such a pretty boat to me.

Wooden Restoration Project 1940’s

Now this yacht is slowly rotting away in our yard, such a shame as once was someone’s pride and joy.

We are not sure of type or weight but she is 38 feet long, has for and aft cabins, head, kitchen (fitted) and shower. Lots and of teak and brass fittings as well as all other original fittings.

The boat is complete and has all running gear and electrics, the main engine is an BMC Commodore & the Aux engine is Perkins, model unknown (none of which have been tested but will turn over by hand). Please bear in mind this boat would need total restoration and thousands of pounds spent, we feel she is only good for spares.

Been out of the water for a very long time so the wooden hull has shrunk and is no longer watertight.

Viewing is a must and transportation will have to be arranged, we will lift boat on to transport for you FOC.

This boat is taking up valuable space and will have to be removed within 2 weeks of end of the auction, storage is available at normal rates after this time.

The yacht can be viewed at Lymington Yacht Haven, Lymington, Hants. Please call 01590 677073 and ask for Tony in stores to arrange viewing.
