Wooden Ships Comments on this Philip 50 TSMY

The Philips 50 was designed and Built by Philips and Son of Dartmouth in 1967 and was one of several similar motor yachts built to the same design.  Philips at the time were a very famous yard and had an excellent reputation in the yachting industry for building quality yachts.

The design offers a lot of deck space, a large saloon and three separate sleeping cabins, all in just over 48′.  Powered by a pair of reliable Perkins 6cyl diesels which have been well maintained, she is capable of good cruising speed with very acceptable fuel consumption.

After a major refit in a previous ownership, she was bought by the present owner who is the grandson of Mr Philip who owned the yard.

2018 survey completed and all work done to rectify the issues raised.
