Broker Remarks

This yacht is a good example of an early South Coast One Design built in 1957 by Woodnuts on the Isle of White. This is a real classic yacht which has the additional head room offered by the raised doghouse containing the galley and chart table. She is built from Mahogany on oak with pine mast and spars. This particular SCOD has lots of history including starring in a Woody Allan film, appearing at the Earls Court Boat Show in 2007 and featured on the front cover of Classic Boat in June 2006.  She is reluctantly being sold due to ill health.  A 2016 survey report is available upon request. 


This SCOD was designed with cruising in mind so has a traditional layout below with a galley in the port quarter by the companionway;. Headroom at the companionway is 1.7m. The galley has a two burner Taylors stove, single sink with manual pumped cold water.  The chart table and navigation station are opposite with trotter boxes underneath to lengthen the saloon berths on either side of the cabin. Upholstery is blue in colour. She benefits form the traditional wood interior which gives a warm and cosy feeling which is enhanced by the Taylors cabin heater. 

Forward is the traditional heads with Baby Blakes head and sail storage space. There is a large cockpit for the size of the yacht. It has a full cockpit tent that extends over the doghouse giving additional protection and storage.
