Wooden Ships Comments on this Salcombe yawl
Built in 1963 by Salcombe Yacht & Marine Co, very similar to Stone’s design. The fleet of Salcombe Yawls has always been very competitive and continues to be so. They can equally be a good family cruising boat and many have the addition of an outboard for this purpose.
Yawl 42 was purchased by the present owner in 2013 and has had a comprehensive refit since. She is now in stunning condition and very reasonably priced.
Clinker mahogany planking on oak frames. Some planking was replaced in the previous ownership and only 2 ribs needed replacement by the present owner. The hull was stripped inside and out and all planking and surfaces treated with 7 coats of Eposeal 300.
Centre thwart replaced in Honduras mahogany, stem bracket replaced.
½” mahogany floorboards replaced with marine ply, epoxy resin sealed and painted with Epifanes floor paint.
Cast iron centre plate removed , sanded and painted. Bronze retaining screws checked.
