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.
