RESTORATION PROJECT39 FT VANDERSTAADT DESIGN YACHT In need of extensive rebuild – not for the faint heartedfurther details on request Collection from Hayling Island Hampshire
On 09-Dec-20 at 21:35:16 GMT, seller added the following information:
The beauty of a hard chine design, apart from enabling the boat to get up onto the plane and increase the hull speed, is that the construction material of plywood means that it is quite feasable to replace any part of the hull should the need arise.In this case due to ill health and the aging process, and the lockdown, the boat has been sadly neglected and a considerable amount of work will be needed to make it seaworthy.It can be done but as stated it is not for the faint hearted.The Marina has lost patience with me and believe that the boat should be scrapped and removed but a previous bidder who has carried out a restoration of a boat of the same construction method has inspected it and believes the boat to be “Zeevalk” and of such historic importance as to be worth restoring and expressed an interest in being involved in the restoration but not on his own.The boat has not been inspected at all this year and the condition is now likely to be lamentable.This is only a project for a vintage boat enthusiast who is prepared to put in the work to carry out a rebuild and restore a classic. It is a very fast boat and although a larger version it is the same design as “Black Soo ” that came second in the Fastnet race back in the day.A Google search will give more information on “Black Soo”There was a article in the Yachting Monthly showing the restoration of a similar boat – further details may be available from them. This is a relisting as a sale has been impossible due to covid regulations so previous bidders will be given first refusal and the sale may not therefore be concluded with the highest bidder and may be withdrawn before the end of the auction but sold to whoever is first to agree to buy the boat for £1
Current Price: £10.50
This Vanderstaadt Yacht 39ft boat is located in Hayling Island Hampshire, PO11 *** and is being sold on eBay by timbu2000.
