About this Classic Laurent Giles Bermudan Sloop


This is a slightly larger version of Laurent Gile's famous Vertue. She had a major refit in 1997, including new keel bolts, garboards, some re-fastening and the deck re-sheathed. Yanmar 2GM20 diesel, new 1998. 4 berths. Sold by Wooden SHips to present owner, she has been cruised locally around the Cornish coast but a lack of time has forced them to sell. An attractive boat, very well built in the beginning which is a huge positive, easy to handle for one or two people but with space for more if required.

Wooden Ships Comments on this Laurent Giles Bermudan sloop

Designed by Laurent Giles and Partners and built by Mashfords of Cremyll, Plymouth 1965 to design No 419 drawn in 1930.

Jack Laurent Giles is one of the best know names in UK yacht design and was responsible for some of the most famous yachts ever built and sailed in UK.

The 25’ Vertue is one of his greatest designs, possibly the most successful small yacht design ever.

This yacht is a slightly larger sister to the Vertue and can justly claim many of the smaller sister’s virtues and she closely resembles the Hiscock’s slightly larger Wanderer 111.

The yacht was built for Cmdr Angus of Plymouth and remained in his ownership until sold by Wooden Ships to the Rev Mike Palmer and his wife in 1997. The yacht had never been fitted out below deck and by 1997 the Commander’s health was suffering and the yacht had not been sailed for a few seasons.

In the ownership of Mike and Nettie Palmer she had a major refit in 1997 when the ballast keel was dropped and rebedded with new bolts, the hood ends of the planks were refastened, the dead-woods were refastened, the few strap floors were regalvanised, the garboards were replaced and the original canvas deck covering replaced with epoxy/glass.

A new aluminium mast and rig was fitted.

She was sold to an Englishman who lived and worked in France. Subsequently she was sold and returned to the UK.

The design is for a conventional long keeled yacht with a short spoon bow and a slightly raked transom stern with very attractive tumble-home.

Length on deck 28’9”

Lwl 24’6”

Beam 8’4”

Draft 5’

Tonnage 7TM
