Wooden Ships Comments on this Kim Holman Rummer Yawl

Designed by Kim Holman and built by H King and Sons of Pin Mill, Suffolk in 1962.

The first of the class was Rummer built in 1958, Kim Holman designed this yacht for himself and raced her for several seasons in Class 111 with notable success.

The design demonstrates some American influence in her greater beam for a 24’ water-line length than was normal in English yachts at the time with almost the same beam at wl as at deck level and generous freeboard thus giving volume to the cabin. In addition Holman gave her quite a full bilge, kept her draft to a minimum, gave her a healthy ballast ratio and kept a low aspect to the rig, all quite innovative features in 1958.

A very sweet lift to the counter and a rising sheer forward give the hull a most attractive line.

Although Kim Holman declared that he designed the yacht to cruise rather than race, she showed her performance in many races winning the Harwich-Ostend Race in her first season. Surprisingly, when compared to the very obviously sleeker and racier Vashti designed by his great competitor, Alan Buchanan, Rummer and Vashti were frequent competitors and usually very closely matched.

This boat has been professionally maintained in the present ownership and updated with modern navigation systems. The cockpit was rebuilt in 2014, keel bolts drawn and checked in 2016 and the varnish and paint work kept up to a good standard. Recent professional out of water refit with repairs to the deck and coachroof.
