CORNUBIA has proven herself as a blue water cruiser, whose ventures near and far you can read about as a training vessel for sea cadets or much loved family sailing pilot cutter...

 

John Leather, noted naval architect himself and prolific writer on marine matters, considered Arthur Payne to be second to none in the design of fast cruising and racing yachts - the equal of William Fife and GL Watson and ahead of Joseph Soper in this regard - and JAVELIN rightly fits into this category.

 

IRINA VII, this beautiful Alfred Mylne designed Fife yard built cutter is pedigree indeed. At 54 ft with a Marconi rig to the original plans, she also has enough accommodation to cruise in comfort...

ORIGINALLY LAUNCHED IN 1911, REBUILT IN 2009, THIS BRISTOL CHANNEL PILOT CUTTER IS NOW OFFERED FOR SALE BY SANDEMAN YACHT COMPANY

Each one of these special boats has her own tale to tell. CORNUBIA has proven herself as a blue water cruiser, whose ventures near and far you can read about as a training vessel for sea cadets or much loved family sailing pilot cutter. Rebuilt by T Nielsen & Co under the supervision of pilot cutter aficionado Tony Winter she has received remarkable treatment for a remarkable vessel.

On deck she remains so true to the original yet below she achieves the character of vintage yacht without offending her work boat roots. MCA coded for commercial work, this has included filming and charters specialising in sailing for disabled children.

 ORION OF THE SEAS

THE 147ft Gaff Schooner, designed by Charles E. Nicholson AND launched in 1910, is NOW offered for sale by Sandeman Yacht Company

Built by Camper & Nicholson to one of the finest designs of Charles E. Nicholson; this yacht originally named SYLVANA was launched in 1910. When commissioned, Nicholson had clearly won over the wealthy yachtsmen of the period to his designs that by then were regularly beating those of Watson, Fife and Herreshoff on the race course.

Now ORION OF THE SEAS; she was completely rebuilt 2003-2005 with a total focus on keeping the original detail where possible but where modern systems were installed; then most discreetly and with effective sound insulation. Where money is no object it can lead to “over restoration” but the treatment of ORION leaves her looking very much as she would have done in 1910 – yet she is probably stronger now than she ever was and could reasonably be described as a “classic super yacht”.

As a regular winner on the classic race circuit; many who have spent time aboard acknowledge how she has touched their lives – she is simply unforgettable.

 BOJAR

THE ULTIMATE RACER-CRUISER DESIGNED BY JOHAN ANKER, BUILT BY ANKER & JENSEN, LAUNCHED IN 1937 IS NOW OFFERED FOR SALE WITH SANDEMAN YACHT COMPANY


Johan Anker was considered an artist in yacht design - greatly concerned with the beauty of lines and BOJAR doesn’t disappoint. Indeed as a boat of such breathtaking and effortless beauty, a classic gem; she genuinely lifts the human spirit and perhaps even defines the term “classic yacht”.

With her keel weight and displacement balanced at approximately 50 / 50 she is an extremely effective sailing boat. Perhaps no surprise then she was the winner of a 'Je ne sais quois’ at the 2012 Panerai Regatta at Cowes; third in class in the Round the Island race and more recently impressive results at the RYS Bicentenary Regatta.

In these days of restorations, it is rare to find a boat both so original and in such fine condition. Given she has had only a few owners throughout her life – the last but one for 28 years, the short Norwegian sailing seasons then with nearly every winter spent inside her own boat shed will certainly have helped. BOJAR can be classic raced with family and friends or easily sailed by just two people, which is unusual for a yacht of this size and vintage. She is truly exceptional.

 MANITOU

THE FAMOUS SPARKMAN & STEPHENS 62FT YAWL MANITOU, LAUNCHED IN 1937 AND SAILED BY PRESDIENT JOHN F. KENNEDY, IS NOW OFFERED FOR SALE BY SANDEMAN YACHT COMPANY


If JFK chose MANITOU for her good looks and speed – who are we to argue? Olin Stephens (Design No 99) drew her in 1936 from the same bloodline as DORADE and STORMY WEATHER for her first owner who wanted to win races - and she is, at 62ft a bigger boat than her sisters, offering more space and luxury below.

Designed to sail well in both light airs and heavy weather; on the Mediterranean classic race circuit she has more than proven her capabilities in winning many regattas outright. The current owners have stopped at nothing in maintaining MANITOU to ensure she is probably as strong as she ever was and cosmetically immaculate.

JAVELIN

THE RARE AND VERY AUTHENTIC JAVELIN, A SUMMERS & PAYNE 73FT KETCH LAUNCHED IN 1897, IS NOW OFFERED FOR SALE BY SANDEMAN YACHT COMPANY

ABOVE: JAVELIN donning her gaff rig, with topsails set by © James Robinson Taylor and a film still of her original interior by Classic Yacht TV

John Leather noted naval architect and prolific writer on marine matters considered Arthur Payne to be second to none in the design of fast cruising and racing yachts - the equal of William Fife and GL Watson and ahead of Joseph Soper in this regard - and JAVELIN rightly fits into this category. Leather went on to say how pleased their owners and crews were to be sailing such seaworthy yachts - often with ketch or yawl rigs designed for easy handling. He noted, too, that the Payne yard had designed and built some of the most beautiful yachts ever to grace the Solent.

At 73ft on deck and with her divided ketch rig JAVELIN can indeed be easily sailed for a vintage yacht of this size. Assiduously restored in 2006, she is hard to tell apart from the Beken pictures taken a hundred years ago.

Indeed her teak and pitch pine hull planking is the original and testament to the quality of design, materials and workmanship of that era. Notwithstanding; modern systems have been discreetly fitted to make her luxurious to live on and a wonderful family boat. More than a century on; with that Beken picture in mind she is moreover haunting to behold.
