About this Toledo Zephyr

We believe that Classic Lady originated from John Morris and Co (Gosport) Ltd in 1936 as a Toledo Zephyr coastal and estuary cruiser. Originally she would have been built to order and had two Morris Navigator 12.24 hp engines, which have subsequently been changed to BMC diesels.

She has spent most of her life on the Thames at Shepperton. Originally an open cruiser, a steel superstructure was added later to make her a very comfortable, safe and warm cruiser that comes into its own in our changeable English weather and in the evenings when there is a chill in the air.

John Morris's boatyard was bought by the Royal Navy in WW2 and used to make naval vessels during the war. One can only speculate, but the heavy steel build of Classic Lady may have had military uses at some point in her 80 year life, maybe even a trip to Dunkirk!  

Over the last 3 years she has seen a complete engine recondition, all ancillaries, electrics, gearboxes, and props replaced at large expense by Harbour Marine Services in Southwold. All the mechanical parts, including controls, cooling, exhaust, electrics and batteries have been replaced with new. 

The twin BMC diesels run beautifully and have only 3 hours of use after a full rebuild and reconditioning. She has new morse controllers, full dashboard instruments and a good turn of speed if required. She has new cutlass bearings, propshafts and new props with rope cutters and anodes.

Her steel hull has been taken back to bare metal, primered, epoxy coated and then painted and antifouled. She has a grey boottop and new nameboards that are removeable should the new owner wish to rename her. Mast, anchor lights and navigation lights have all been fitted new. Teak boxes for the navigation lights and new doors and runners were manufactured out of teak.

The counter rotating props, twin engines and large rudder make her easy to handle and her weight ensures that she stays put in the water, not bothered by cross winds or stream, which makes navigating locks and narrow waterways a fairly simple task. Underwater obstacles aren't an issue either as her plated steel hull is resilient to most bumps and scrapes that may occur in normal river work. 

The interior is finished in a mix of hardwoods with mahogany being the main wood used throughout. She has a comfortable two berth cabin with electricity, shore power, sink, gas cooker with grill, diesel heater, and a fully serviced Blakes head. There is a Samsung TV and integrated sound system throughout the boat. 

She is very safe at night, with lockable wooden doors, a very warm and cosy wheelhouse and galley and convertible beds that turn into one double if required. There is also an additional hammock bed in the wheelhouse. She is perfect for cruising on inland waterways, tidal rivers and also canals due to her narrow beam. Staying on board is safe and comfortable. 

At the stern there is a small deck with two seats that is ideal for relaxing in the afternoon with a cup of tea or something stronger! The superstructure is steel so sunbathing on the fore deck or even the roof is no problem. 

She comes with a full boat cover manufactured by Jeckylls. Boat and gas safety certificates are provided as are full invoices of all work carried out. 

Selling her due to work relocation.
