Classic - Bombigher Tender Dream for sale
  • Classic - Bombigher Tender Dream for sale
  • Moored in St Malo, France. "And now for something completely different..." Sunbird in St Malo are delighted to offer this pocket sized modern classic from the pen of Daniel Z Bombigher, best known for the Schpountz series. No1 of only 2 yet built to these plans, the Tender Dream is a charming weekender, beautifully built by Teck et Acajou / St Malo Classic Boat, of strip planked, laminated timber, epoxy coated. She was little used by her first owner, restored by her current (second) owner and currently tucked up in a barn. The owner is relocating abroad and the boat needs just a little pre-season love and attention to be fully ready to enjoy.
    From a 1995 design, one of only two built to date. Beautiful laminated strip planked, epoxy coated construction. 9hp Yanmar diesel. Marine wc under companionway step. 2 single berths fwd with infill conversion. Saloon table. Galley unit to stbd with hand pumped fresh water to sink. Numerous "Bombigher" features such as cut out heart motifs. Gaff rig with Dutch style curved gaff. Partially boomed self tacking jib. Beaching legs. Inflatable dinghy and outboard. Log/speed and compass. All over winter cover. New rudder to Bombigher's design crafted for the current owner as the first owner mislaid the original... Bombigher designs show influences from the Chesapeake and New England as well as from the Netherlands. Not just a miniature Schpountz, but a charming sailing boat which makes one think of Ticonderoga or the schooner America. In generally lovely condition, with only a few pre-season jobs to do - a seacock to change, a bilge wash through and perhaps paint? Clean the sink, put her back together, launch and enjoy. The seller will hand over a set of the designer's plans and notes.

Classic Marine & Classic Craft - Allanson D25
  • Classic Marine & Classic Craft - Allanson D25
  • "Roninella" is an Allanson D25 and provides a rare opportunity to purchase a classic yacht which is stepped with history. Rondinella was built in 1952, with beautifully varnished mahogany woodwork she has been turning heads from the day she was launched with not only her looks but also by her performance. This D25, deigned by Peter Brett, was a predecessor of the well known Rivals.Roninella featured in Heavy Weather Sailing for One. A particular showing in the 1956 Channel Race, quoted: A remarkable performance was put up by Rondinella, the only class III boat to complete the course, for she sailed throughout the gale and crossed the finishing line second, beating all other competitors boat for boat without handicap. Having suffered damage during the 1987 Medway hurricane she was purchased by a boatyard in Chatham where she was lovingly restored over the course of a year. Owned by its current owners for 23 years, the boat has been well looked after and is pulled ashore every year, its hoped that Rondinella's colourful history and pedigree can now be enjoyed by a new owner with many more years of enjoyment ahead.
    An early viewing of this boat is highly recommended.
