Wooden Ships Comments on this Salcombe Yawl

Salcombe Yawl No.36 built in 1961 by Stones of Portlemouth on the banks of the Salcombe Estuary.

Built for local man Dr. Hammond, she was part of the local fleet for many years.  Refitted by a specialist local yard which looks after many of the current Yawl fleet.  This refit was completed in 2009/2010 with all new decks and repairs to the hull.  The boat was then laid up in a shed and hardly used until the current owner purchased her a few years later.

She comes with a good quality Bramber road trailer and combination launching trolley plus 2 sets of cruising sails.

Lovely earlier example of the class.
