Yachting World 5 Tonner - £4,995

This classic boat in Burmese teak is a Yachting World 5 Tonner. In 1945, Yachting World magazine commissioned Mr Robert Clarke to design a small auxiliary cruiser to be known as The Yachting world 5 tonner. This beautiful example, Janina, is Bermudan Sloop rigged with tan sails and a genuine period classic look.

She was built in Bombay in 1946 by the Ammedi ship yard, to Robert Clarke's design, using double diagonal Burmese Teak planking on teak frames. The result is a vessel with immense strength and durability on a long keel hull. In a 2005 survey the surveyor stated that "the vessel is well constructed to a very high standard and with top class materials."

This classic yacht comes well presented with a comprehensive inventory. The original engine has been replaced with a modern 3 cylinder Kobuta 20 horse power with only 10 hours use. The whole deck has been covered with new Treadmaster decking.

Full provenance including the previous bill of sale and the December 2005 survey is available. More information can be provided about the original design and full details of items included.

Now out of the water, this boat can be fully inspected. She is in need of cosmetic attention only, including a hull repaint.
