About this Custom 49' Danish Gaff Ketch

Wooden Ships Comments on this 49' Danish Gaff Ketch Built in 1918 by the shipyard Boerresen in Vejle as a fishing vessel. She worked until 1984 in the Kattegat area and then moved to fishing grounds further south before retiring and being bought by the present owners in 1995. She was converted and refitted by a very well known and competent yard in Marstal, the home of Danish seafaring, and has been sailed as a private yacht ever since. She is an exceptionally pretty vessel with a slightly raked stem and a fine entry in the bows, a full mid ships under body and a lovely run aft up to the trade mark elliptical counter that the Danish vessels are so much admired for. She has sweet sheer line, not as pronounced as some of her compatriots which gives her a little more headroom below decks in the waist area. A very eye catching yacht, with an easily managed rig, which has been well cared for in her experienced present ownership. She is a very safe and stable sailing ship in any weather. There are many examples of these converted fishing boats but few as pretty as this one.   Length on Deck 49' Length Overall 64' Beam 14'6" Draft 7'3" Displacement 28 tons Ballast 5.5 tons of lead bars   Construction Hull Typical Danish fishing vessel construction, planked in oak fastened to heavy sawn oak frames very closely spaced together.   Decks Deck is straight laid in solid pine, screw fastened from above into the deck beams and the seams are caulked with cotton and payed with pitch.
