Yacht "SKO" Classic Sailing Boat
by George Wearing
Designed Sparkman and Stephens.
Built in 1971 by Deacons Boatyard as the Deacon 33, She was the mould for the Deb 33 glass fibre boats.
I have the original drawings.
This is a restoration project since the boat is in need of substantial re-planking above the waterline and general re-refurbishment.
- Mahogany planked and splined hull.
- Teak decks and coachroof.
- Laminated iroko frames.
- Bronze floors.
- Volvo 23hp inboard engine ( will need overhaul).
- Shallow draft with drop keel 7ft 3” keel down, 3ft 6” plate up.
Sale to include: boat, mast and spares, steel cradle, comprehensive inventory although the electronics will be obsolete now I expect
I converted her to yawl, in common with a lot of S and S yachts, one advantage was that I could set a mizzen staysail!.
