She has only been in the water for 2 months since completion of this work and has only 15 hours on the engine. 4 berths with a good size interior for her length, lots of deck space and a safe cockpit. Pretty, easily managed and capable yacht in very fine condition.

Kim Holman Sovereign Ketch
Full Specification

Wooden Ships Comments Kim Holman Sovereign ketch

The Sovereign was designed by Kim Holman as a comfortable family cruising boat that could be easily managed and provide enough living space for extended periods aboard. This particular boat was built in 1965 to Lloyds 100A1 by Jack Holman in Brixham, and kept in class until 1977.

The boat was bought by a chap in the mid 1990’s who after a few years of sailing decided to embark on an extensive refit and then take the boat on an extended voyage. Consequently she has spent the last 18 years ashore under cover on the east coast where she has had a major refit including a complete new teak on ply deck, new engine and systems including tanks, new masts spars, rigging and sails plus a thorough cosmetic refit. Bought by the present owner in 2015, the project had been abandoned and the boat lay idle in the yard so the present owner got everything finished off, got her rigged, launched and sea trialled. She barely made a drop of water when launched and the new machinery and rigging is all working well. She needs some basic fitting out below to complete her but this is very minor work.

She was bought solely to finish the project, not because the owner wanted a yacht to sail over the horizon, so now she is finished it is time to sell her on move on. This is a great opportunity for someone to purchase a thoroughly refitted and sound yacht with lots of new equipment for a very reasonable sum.
