Theodora the Sparkman & Stephens design 45ft Yawl is for sale with Vicsail Sydney.

2010 launched Sparkman & Stephens design 45ft Yawl. Built over 4 years in New Zealand by world famous Ian Franklin Boat Builders. "Theodora" was built as a modern S&S 45 from the original 1945 design and classic lines. Built from cold moulded Kauri timber in triple layerers over Kauri frames and covered with an E-glass skin. The result is a rot resistant hull which is very stiff and strong. This is a superb modern classic with modern rigging, electronics and systems, which is a delight to sail and easily sailed short handed.

The interior is rich in timber with unresticted headroom, finished in highly varnished American Cheerywood and Australian Jarrah. The layout is spacious with good storage and a large central folding table with allows 6 to dine in elegant style. The L shape galley is a chef's paradise with Force 10 gas stove and oven, large bench space and 12v refrigeration. The moulded Corian benchtop with fiddles and sink are immaculately finished.

Aft starboard side is a full lenght quarter berth and navigation table with switch panel, VHF radio and navigation instruments. The navigation table is a true ship's masters corner to plot your next adventure from. The interior is crafted from solid timbers to the highest standards from an era that is rare in modern boat design.

The cockpit and decks are laid in rare Burmese teak glued to the decks without screws which present beautifully. The cockpit is very comfortable for guests, crew and skipper with good coamings keeping the area well protected from the sea. The binnacle helm station with electronics pod houses a Raymarine E80 chartplotter and a classic compass. The electric retractable centreboard is easily controlled from a switch at the helm.

Primary sailing controls lead to the cockpit with German main sheet system, roller furling headsail, self-tacking staysail and main/mizzen lazy jacks. The sail plan and rigging was re-designed for the new build in 2010 by Sparkman & Stevens to be a modern easy to sail design with performance and short-handed sailing as the brief. All sails are in classic style made from Dimension Polyant cloth and are in excellent condition.

This is a rare opportunity to own a classis masterpiece built at great expense and to the highest standards by owners who have cherished this beautiful classic yawl and are now looking for new adventures.
