About this Custom Norman Dallimore centreboard sloop


Wooden Ships Comments on this Norman Dallimore centreboard sloop Designed by Norman Dallimore and built by Kings of Burnham in 1938, a combination that produced some exceptionally fine pre-war yachts of which this is no exception. The first owner had won a medal in the 1924 Olympic games on the Fife Emily, this little Dallimore was a retirement present to himself. Designed as a comfortable day sailer but with accommodation for 2, the cockpit can comfortably accommodate 4 people while sailing without tripping over each other, while under sail she is a well balanced and nicely behaved yacht. She has a fully documented history and was sold by Wooden Ships to the last 3 owners. The current owner has previously worked as a professional shipwright and has carried out a good deal of very good quality work in the last 2 years. This has included checking keel bolts, replacing fastenings, replacing cracked frames and repairing the mast, as well as the usual paint and varnish and full engine service. Her looks make her stand out in any crowd, typical of many of Dallimore's boats, and with good sailing performance and ease of handling, she is a boat that will appeal to many sailors. She is light enough to be towed on the road making her a versatile and potentially cheap to run classic yacht with all the pedigree and provenance anyone could wish for. Now in very smart and sound condition, sailed regularly in the last 2 seasons.   Length on Deck 24'6" Beam 6'9" Draft 3' / 4'6" Thames Tonnage 4TM   Construction Carvel planked in mahogany all copper clench fastened to steam bent Canadian Rock Elm timbers. 12 frames either replaced or repaired in 2020 using oak. Garboards refastened with bronze screws in 2020. Hood ends refastened 2021. Oak back bone with an external lead ballast keel of 750kg fastened with bronze keel bolts. 2 keel bolts removed and checked in 2020. Ballast keel slotted to take the bronze centreboard plate. Centreboard operated with a winding mechanism mounted inside a varnished teak box in the cockpit with a stainless steel wire. Centreplate removed in 2020 for checking. Grown oak floors across the centreline with bronze throat bolts. New deck laid in 1996 with 2 overlapping layers of Cedar planking, sheathed externally with epoxy glass cloth. Nicely proportioned varnished mahogany tow rail and rubbing strake mounted on a small vanrished mahogany coverboard round the deck edge. Varnished teak cockpit and coachroof coamings with opening bronze portholes. Sheathed plywood coachroof deck with a large sliding varnished teak hatch allowing easy access into the cabin. Deep spacious cockpit with varnished teak lockers and thwarts. Scrubbed teak sole boards. Bench seat either side with a bridge deck at the forward end which lifts to access the engine. Shelves under the side decks with fiddle rails.     Rig Fractional bermudan sloop rig on a varnished keel stepped varnished spruce mast. Single spreaders and jumper struts. Bottom 5’ of the mast replaced with Sitka spruce in 2020. Varnished spruce, bumpkin and roller reefing boom. Stainless steel standing rigging new in 2003 to internal bronze chain plates, new in 1996. Running and standing rigging all checked and replaced as necessary in 2020. Standing backstay to the bumpkin with running backstays tensioned by the cockpit winches. Forestay to the stem head with hanked on headsail. 280sqft of sail with a mainsail and jib by Sanders Sails, 2001. Sail cover and cockpit cover in blue canvas.

Single lever controls to a centreline 2 blade bronze propeller. Stainless shaft fitted new with the engine. Copper fuel tank under the port side deck, removed and refitted when engine installed. Single 12 volt battery charged from the engine alternator.     Accommodation Simple but surprisingly spacious interior with 2 good length berths and sitting headroom under the coachroof. The inside of the hull was stripped and painted in 2020, with all new gloss paint on the deck head making the cabin extremely smart, crisp and clean. Net shelving either side under the side deck.         Full specification and details available upon request       Disclaimer: These particulars have been prepared in good faith from information provided by the Vendors and are intended as a guide, Wooden Ships cannot guarantee or warrant the accuracy of this information nor warrant the condition of the vessel.
