PROJECT BOAT – FOR SALE ‘AS IS’
A Bowman 46 yawl launched in 1976 with beautiful lines and classic tumblehome from the pen of Holman and Pye. Built by bowman Yachts, Emsworth, England. A well regarded centreboard centre cockpit offshore bluewater cruiser.
A regular sight in the Caribbean for many years cruising between St Barth’s and Martinique, in the care of a long term owner but now in need of a refit.
The boat was last sailed in 2019 and has since been laid-up ashore. Fitted with a Perkins 4.108 50hp engine, the once teak-laid decks having been replaced with a non-skid paint finish.
Hull, deck and engine seem ok, centrebord was ok the last time the boat was in the water but the rigging, sails, electrics, hoses and thru hulls are all old. Interior joinery and headliners require attention following leaks from the hatches and portlights.
If you are interested come and take a look, please don’t send me lists with dozens of questions and expect answers.
