About this Classic 24 ton Berthon Gauntlet


Built in 1936 for the then chairman of Coutts Bank, she is the only Gauntlet of this size ever built. All teak hull and decks, varnished from new but now painted cream. Rebuilt over 16 years in previous ownership with a new bermudan ketch rig on alloy masts. Present owners have updated the systems and used her as a cruising home for the last 18 months with a voyage from Scotland to southern Spain. Interior is full of original panelled joinery with 3 sleeping cabins. A magnificent yacht from the top drawer of British yachting at the time. Now fully functioning and proven after a recent period of cruising.

Specification

Wooden Ships Comments

One of the largest Gauntlets built by the Berthon Boat Co. she is typical of the design with an elegant sheer and canoe stern. Commissioned by the chairman of Coutts bank, she was built in 1936 to Lloyds 100A1 and maintained in class until 1984.

She was in the same family ownership for the first 40 years of her life after which she was sold to a Swiss family who took her to the Caribbean for charter work. Sold in 1991 by Wooden Ships to the previous owner who started a 16 year refit in Scotland where the boat was checked from top to bottom, a new rig fitted, interior refurbished and all new systems and electrics fitted. Sold again by Wooden Ships in 2017 since when she had another gentle refit and has been cruised by the family to her current berth in southern Spain. She has proved herself as a very comfortable and safe live aboard cruising boat for the family but a change in circumstances means she is now going up for sale again.

The rig was re-designed during the long refit and her old Bermudan cutter rig was replaced with a cutter headed yawl rig. This enabled the overall sail area to be increased while decreasing the size of the individual sails making her generally a lot easier to handle. There are no longer running backstays because of the use of jumper struts, the jib is on a roller reefing system and the staysail is boomed making her very simple and easy to sail. The owner has reported she will sail upwind with just a mizzen and staysail, and in over a Force 5 she will tack upwind comfortably with a staysail and reefed main.

In the last year she has been upgraded and improved with new batteries and electrical systems, self steering gear, additions to the inventory and a complete internal and external cosmetic refit. The boat has also been a cruising home and well proven so a new owner knows exactly what he is taking on and it is plain to see just how good the boat is.

A very impressive and eye catching yacht, full of character and pedigree with much of her original interior and fittings. Now in lovely condition after a thorough 16 year refit she is an unusual and very special yacht.
