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.
