Wooden ships comments on this 64′ Danish fishing boat .
This vessel is a major project. Please be aware that she is not ready for sea in her current condition and requires significant work to the hull in order to make her seaworthy. Her present mooring is not available with the sale so she will have to be moved soon after change of ownership.
Bjorn and Jacobsen, Frederickshavn, Denmark
Built in Denmark almost certainly as a fishing boat on the traditional lines with bluff bows and that lovely elliptical counter stern that is such a signature of the Danish boats.
She was sailed to Grimsby during WWII where she was used for many jobs, including fisheries, as a supply vessel and later as a dive boat.
Bought by the current owner in 1989.
Heavy oak planking on closely spaced square section oak frames, all fastened with iron dumps. Some planking has been replaced in recent years using Iroko.
New solid straight laid Iroko deck, caulked and payed. A pop deck has been created stretching some 30’ forward of the stern. This deck at the level of the capping rail provides an enormous amount more space within the hull. All new deck beams throughout.
She has the basis of a gaff ketch rig which has not been completed. Mainmast is stepped in a galvanised tabernacle on the main deck. Sampson post takes the heel of the bowsprit. Other spars are available but not finished.
Gardener 6LXB, completely rebuilt with less than 100 hours running time. New crankshaft, pistons, liners and heads. PRM 3 in 1 gearbox to 3 blade fixed pitch bronze propellor.
24 and 12 volt alternators.
6Kva Watamotor generator properly installed.
Access to the ship through the midships wheelhouse just forward of the raised deck. Hydraulic wheel steering with an external wheel position on the stern.
Steps down on the port side over the large engine box.
Full breadth saloon with a galley on the port side. Steps down going forward to four sleeping cabins with two separate heads with showers.
Aft of the engine space going into the counter is a large space in need of conversion.
This is a fine big boat in need of someone with some skills and time to take her on and finish the work. There is a large inventory with the ship. The engine and generator alone are worth more than the asking price.
