About this Custom Laurent Giles Vertue II


Wooden Ships Comments on this Laurent Giles Vertue II Based on the famous Vertue design by Laurent Giles, this is the very first example of what was known as the Vertue II, the same lines but built using GRP, completed in 1979 and built to Lloyds 100A1 classification. Shortly after completion, the boat was exhibited at the London Boat Show in 1979. This is the first and and possibly the best GRP Vertue II, a superb and immensely capable short handed blue water cruising boat. The most notable feature of this boat compared to other examples of the Vertue II is her interior. Because she was due to be exhibited at the boat show, the yard put a lot of time and effort into building her interior using solid teak giving her a cozy and comfortable feeling comparable to some of her earlier wooden sister ships. Later boats were not fitted out to this high standard due to the extortionate cost. Sold into Swedish ownership in 2010 where she has been based ever since, cruising the archipelagos and coasts of the Baltic. Last year she was sold, bought by an Australian for an intended long distance cruise and she had considerable investment with new gear and equipment in readiness for that trip. Unfortunately plans have changed, the trip cancelled and the boat must be sold once again. The boat had been totally prepared for this voyage and is a fully equipped, turn key blue water cruising boat in ready to go condition. Recent updates include: 2021 survey New Liferaft New AIS New roller furling headsail system New batteries New EPIRB and PLB   She has been well maintained and continually upgraded over the years. She is well set up for single handed sailing, easily handled by one person and capable of offshore cruising in rough weather if required, the Vertue has often been referred to as the 'greatest offshore cruiser'.   Length on Deck 25'8" Length Waterline 21'6" Beam 7'10" Draft 4'5" Displacement 4,100kg/9000lbs Ballast 2000kg/4400lbs   Construction GRP moulded hull, heavily laid and built to Lloyds 100A1. 2 ton external iron ballast keel.

Aries wind vane steering fitted.     Rig Masthead bermudan sloop rig on a deck stepped alloy mast. Mast steps fitted. New Selden single line slab reefing boom in 2016. Stack pack system fitted on lazy jacks. The mast and rigging is over spec for a boat of her size making everything very strong. Twin lower shrouds and a single cap shroud to internal stainless steel chain plates. ProFurl C290 roller furling genoa system, new in 2022. Split standing backstay. Inner forestay for storm jib. Fully battened mainsail with lazy jacks and stack pack system. Genoa by Hood in good condition. Second genoa, storm jib, working jib and spinnaker.

Small inverter for 240 volt, new in 2022.     Accommodation 3 berths plus an extra berth in the fore peak currently used for storage. 6'2" headroom throughout the saloon. The interior of this very first example of the Vertue II was finished in solid teak panelling all done to a very high standard and gives her a cosy comfortable feel in the cabin similar to that of her earlier wooden counterparts. Steps down from the cockpit with a quarter berth to starboard and galley to port. Galley has an Origo twin burner meths stove on gimbals. Stainless sink with manually pumped fresh and salt water. Various lockers, cubby holes and storage shelves around the galley give plenty of stowage space. Half height bulkheads with the recognisable curved top found in Vertues separate off the main saloon. Settee berth either side with trotter box forward. Lockers behind under the deck head and storage beneath the seats as well. Teak shelf and storage lockers at the forward end of the saloon either side, each with a brass oil lamp on gimbals. Custom made stainless steel solid fuel cabin heater mounts on the bulkhead.
