Boat Details

This superb classic Van De Stadt design was built in 1973 and rebuilt in 2013 she has had only 3 owners from new. Van De Stadt was noted for his designs of very pleasing, sea-worthy cruising yachts. She has a full keel and an overhanging transom stern. Constructed from carvel planked 7/8 inch utile (mahogany) copper fastened to 1 3/8 inch x 1 1/8 inch steamed oak ribs at 6 inch centres on an oak backbone carrying 1.6 tons of ballast. When she was completely rebuilt and professionally heavy duty sheatheded so is completely dry, a new J80 mast was put on in 2013 and the Yanmar GM10 engine reconditioned , (including all ancillary equipment), stern gland, prop and prop shaft. Since then she has been lightly used and clearly cherished.

Broker's Comments

Gavott II is the boat that all Bermuda Sloops should be compared to, she has the class and classic feel of the original 1973 build, but has the strength and reliability of the 2013 Rebuild. The cheeky aft cabin really makes the Gavott II an absolute must buy, the current owner bought her in July this year and almost immediately there after was told by the doctors that he won't sail again, the sale price reflects the owner's desire to sell her quickly to someone who will treasure her.
