Description:

FYI...The drop down menu on the ad form will not let me put in "1925" so I put in one of the years of her restoration work. As a motivated seller, I introduce "Senorita", and an opportunity to own a piece of history in the form of this heavily-built and beautiful sailing yacht. For the past 8 years, I have committed my life into her ongoing restoration. She was built in Dartmouth, England by Philip & Son shipbuilding firm. Her design is attributed to Claud Worth who commissioned the same yard to build Tern IV which is Senorita's famous twin. Senorita is listed on the UK Official Register of Historic Vessels. She is in excellent condition mechanically and structurally and is ready to be moved by her new owner to the port of his or her choice. There is a mizzen mast that I may be able to get for her if interested, but it is not presently stepped. Down below, there is plenty of standing headroom for not just short people. I am over 6 foot tall and walk around comfortably. Starting from the aft, there is a master stateroom containing a large raised double berth on the starboard side and a single settee which can be used as a berth on the portside. An original cast iron sink is located beside the master berth that simply needs plumbing. In the master stateroom is the vent for the heat pump in addition to a vented bulkhead kerosene heater. Raised panel cabinets and plenty of storage spaces in this room make it comfortable to spend much time aboard or even use as a liveaboard (as I have done for years). A large butterfly hatch above provide light and ventilation. A solid wood doorway leads to the companionway/landing area. On the starboard side is the head, which contains a large porcelain sink with classic fixtures, a very large and comfortable stall shower and a manual flush toilet. Again, there is plenty of storage in the form of an antique medicine cabinet a small wooden locker and additional shelf space. Through the second solid wood doorway is the main salon decorated with period appropriate furnishings. On the port side, there is a settee along with bookshelf and storage space. On the starboard side is a large sofa and dining table. A butterfly hatch and ports allow much natural light and ventilation. A Morso coal/wood freestanding iron stove is located in this room, as is done on many liveaboard boats in Europe. Through the third solid wood door forward is the galley. It has more space for meal preparation than most Manhattan apartments. In the butcher-block countertop is a stainless steel sink with hot and cold pressure water fixtures as well as a traditional bronze cold water manual pump. Counter space and cabinetry is abundant on both the starboard and port side. Not seen in the picture is the port side where there are leaded glass cabinets as well as additional counter space. The galley contains a Broadwater large four burner propane stove with oven/broiler as well as a microwave oven and a 110v refrigerator. The basic construction of the vessel is: Garboard is of English elm. Hull is planked with 3/4"-1" teak. The frames are of double-sawn Oak approximately 14" on center. The deck is plywood encapsulated in West System epoxy. Other notable equipment includes: Westerbeke Marine engine 70hp. Champion generator. Mermaid Air conditioner with reverse cycle heat. New Mastervolt Inverter/ charger (not yet installed). Dytek battery charger. Instant propane hot water heater. Iron coal fired stove. Manual davit. Substantial manual windlass (to Claud Worth's original design). 3 anchors (1 Danforth, 2 fisherman) w/ 180' chain and 200' rode (additional rode as well). Avon inflatable dinghy. Winter cover. Multiple butterfly hatches offering enormous light and ventilation. Authentic oil fired nav lights. The boat has had ongoing work in the last number of years. The result is a remarkably dry hull underway or at the dock. Recent work includes the following: Entire boat re-caulked and re-fastened as needed. Beam Shelves replaced as needed. Deck beams replaced as needed. New West system fiberglass deck. New Bulwarks. New floor strap fastenings installed. Keel Bolts inspected and affirmed in excellent condition. Standing rigging overhauled and serviced. Engine rebuilt. Fuel tanks (copper) removed, cleaned and reinstalled with new hose. **Note Mizzen mast not currently installed though may be available. Sails include: New Main; Heavy Weather Main; 150%+Genoa
