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!.
Featured in Classic boat magazine some years ago, Peter Phelan author and photographer.
Asking price £2850
While the original system
worked quite well as a one-off post, it didn’t allow for updating or
posting new photographs etc.
That is why I have
introduced the new Wood
This is new ‘Community’
platform is for 2018.
It is designed to put you
in control of your content, make it easier to for you to tell us about
your Wooden Boat, upload photos etc. and most of all post updates as
and when you wish to.
There is also a forum where
you can ask any questions you may have about Wooden Boats and join in
So, please come on
