Classic yacht Sylphida is a wooden 1948 Camper & Nicholson Phoenix 35
She is Camper & Nicholson Yard Build No. 753 and is a mahogany on oak long keel cruiser and her woodwork is epoxy sheathed. Her dimensions are 35ft 6in long, just 7ft beam, 6ft 6in draught and a displacement of 6,000kg. The epoxy sheathing was undertaken proffessionally to a very high standard so this yacht needs far less maintanance than the usual carvel built yachts.She is sloop rigged with aluminum spars and stainless steel standing rigging, a slab reefing mainsail and threee headsails. Engine, heads, heating, electrics and all ther gubbins are there.She represents a stepping stone in yacht design from wooden boat building techniques to the early days of fibreglass construction.
In the past 2 months she has had the engine services and cables replaced. She has had the sea cocks all serviced. There is a new toilet which has yet to be fitted.
She could be anti fouled and put in the water with very little work. We run a sailing project and our only reason for selling is that she can only comfortably sail with 4.
Current Price: £500.00
