About this Custom Classic Pre-War Motor Yacht
Wooden Ships Comments on this Classic Pre-War Motor Yacht
Built by Dixon and Hutchinson of Southampton in 1924 to a design typical of the period, an elegant and fine bodied motor yacht with raised topsides forward and a snug aft cockpit.
Over the years she has been altered and changed to her current configuration with a central wheelhouse, aft cabin and forward accommodation. She has been an excellent part time live aboard yacht, very comfortable, warm and dry but a change in circumstances for the owner mean the boat has to be sold.
She would make an excellent coastal cruising boat, or indeed for exploring inland waterways with her moderate draft.
Her engine has been rebuilt and is with the boat but not yet fitted in place.
A nice looking pre-war period motor yacht with potential to be a superb cruising yacht for a couple.
Length on Deck 40’
Length Waterline 40’
Planked in 1.5” pitch pine all copper rivet fastened to steam bent oak timbers.
Recent work to replace caulking in the garboards and hood ends.
Oak keel and stem. Stem repaired with new laminated section.
Internal lead trimming ballast of approximately 5 tons.
Laid pine deck, caulked and payed, over a T&G pine sub deck.
Mahogany wheelhouse and butterfly skylight on the foredeck.
Stainless steel stanchions with a mahogany hand rail.
Stainless steel transom hung rudder with wheel steering.
She has a mast stepped in a tabernacle on the foredeck. The current mast is a recently built one but the installation is not yet complete. The stainless standing rigging is in place but not connected up properly.
Originally fitted with a centreline main engine and a wing engine. The wing engine has been removed but the shaft and propeller are still in place.
Ford D 4cyl diesel main engine has been rebuilt and is with the boat but not installed.
2 x 12 volt batteries, recently fitted with a Victron 240 volt charger.
80 gallon steel fuel tank under aft deck.

Hot water from a gas fired boiler, professionally installed in 2018.
Moving forward into the saloon which is a cosy space with a large wood burning oven and a settee either side. The port side is large enough to be a berth when needed. The large wood burner runs a radiator in the aft cabin for added heating, the circulation pump for this needs attention. Some nice period joinery in the saloon with lockers, side board and nice period fittings.
Bulkhead into the fore cabin with twin V-berths. Skylight above and access forward into the chain locker.
Steps down from the wheelhouse on the starboard side into the aft cabin with a large double berth on the port side and nice period joinery to starboard.
