    Gaff Yawl for sale

    Dawn, a Gaff Yawl, was built in Falmouth on 1905 by Thomas of Falmouth. An extract from Yachting Monthly in 1905 says, 'Her owner's requirements were for a thoroughly good sea boat, easily worked without a paid hand.' It goes on to say, 'although of heavy displacement she carries a fair turn of speed and her best point of sailing is to windward in a hard blow.' Although known as a gaff yawl Dawn has her mizzen forward of the stern post so technically she is a ketch. Dawn did her bit at Dunkirk and is on the historic ships register.


    This is a rare opportunity to own a piece of yachting history with the current owner just having completed a major refit in one of the best traditional boatbuilding yards. All aspects of the rebuild were completed to a very high standard with new deck beams, decks, toe rail and aft stem post fitted. She had new keel bolts in 2020 made from the best marine grade stainless steel. Pictures of the refit and survey are available.
    She has new white sails, new running and standing rigging. Although her sections are narrow, she has the traditional two berths in the saloon with storage forward of the main mast. Her galley and chart table are of a sensible size.
