MASSIVE PRICE REDUCTION: New Silver Gull is a 1939 Wishbone Stays'l Gentlemans ketch that has been lovingly restored and now offered for sale for the first time in 25 plus years. Her current owners believe it is time to find new custodians of this piece of history. A true proven wooden sailing vessel that has thousands of miles to her name.
She is constructed of Spotted Gum below waterline Douglas Fir above the waterline over Spotted Gum steam bent frames. For the deck she consists of laid Beech decking over Oregon beams New Guinea Rosewood sub-decking with Cedar and Mahogany fit out below decks. She has Spar grade Oregon masts and 3 wishbone timber booms.
The current owners found the yacht laid up in the Clarence River New South Wales in 1989 and have spent most of the time since slowly bringing her back to her present state. Her travels since 1989 have taken her from Hobart to the top of the Queensland East coast. The Gull has been granted Historical Yacht status by the Australian National Maritime Museum.
The Gull has a 100HP Yanmar diesel which full fills the need for 21st century demand for power she is equipped with a Kubota diesel Genset water desalination hot water & refrigeration.
With many modern conveniences and navigation aids on board her old world charm has not been lost by beautifully integrating the equipment into the vessel. The interior has to been seen to appreciate the level of craftsmanship that has restored her to life.
The refit and upgrading process has been undertaken with the desire to retain as much as possible the traditional boat feel and appearance. The furniture in the saloon and galley is all polished timber with leather covers and laid Beech cabin soles. Where possible 21st century 'luxuries' such as microwave oven air-conditioning washing machine TV and electronics are discretely hidden behind closed doors or panels. This then gives a feel of a 'gentlemen's club' atmosphere below.
Lovingly restored owned and maintained New Silver gull is ready to sail on her full complement of 6 working sails plus an MPS the Gull carries a "cloud of sail". She is viewable at Sanctuary Cove now. E1289
