A lovely example of the Dutch Banjer - “Young Banjer” is one of a rare breed of motor sailor that offers an exceptional amount stability and space for her relatively short hull length. The Banjer 37 Motorsailer is a handsome GRP ketch rigged motorsailor modelled on the lines of a North Sea trawler with a distinct emphasis on the motoring side of her job. The hull and superstructure were moulded by Polyboats of Amsterdam and the minimum hull thickness is half of an inch. “Young Banjer” is an aft cabin variant which is accessible from the cosy wheel house. The layout makes her ideal for two couples looking to travel in comfort. Hull, decks, superstructure, cockpit, forecabin and toilet/shower compartment are all made in GRP. Longitudinal and transverse bulkheads are of marine plywood. Fuel tanks (250 gall.), Fresh water tanks (150 gall - not plumbed in) and waste tank (20 gall.) are all in fiberglass, as well as the rudder. Rudder head and heel are made of stainless steel. All exterior wood is in teak and the interior woodwork of marine plywood and teak. Cabin soles are also in solid teak. The G.R.P. hull was moulded in two halves, and the part modulus then bolted and the halves laminated together. The 4 ton ballast goes in the form of cast iron pigs laid in the trough-shaped keel, and the whole was then cemented in and glassed over. Antifouled in the Spring of 2016 used throughout the Summer and taken out of the water November 2016 she is now lying on the hard here at Holyhead Marina. Her engine has been regularly serviced over the last few years at the boat yard in Pwhelli and is still in good working order. Her standing rigging is also in good order and so is her deck hardware. The deck itself can be said to be in need of either a coat of paint or fresh grip pads adding to bring it back to life and there are cosmetic elements of her external/internal woodwork that would benefit from regeneration although they are all still functional. The owner has also invested in sturdy stainless steel guard railing to the around the deck and at the base of the main mast. Her electronics suite is comprehensive, modern and working correctly. It is fair to say that she is in good usable condition but will benefit from light cosmetic regeneration to bring her back to prime condition. All in all, a solid investment and a very capable vessel for the modest asking price.
