Ferro cement Endurance 40 hull professionally built by Windboats.
Built by Windboats using Seacrete in the early 1970's to Lloyds A1 spec. Full plans available but no original hull receipt or invoice (invoice for owners sistership Endurance 40 would be available as an example).
The hull was originally supplied in a configuration for a twin mast schooner rig but could be easily adapted for single mast Cutter or twin mast Ketch rig.
The owner tells us the hull is in good condition for its age and will be stripped out ready for refitting by a boatyard or amateur builder. It has a rudder, stern tube, propshaft and Blakes seacocks fitted plus other gate valves and six hinged rectangular port lights plus a pushpit and teak rubbing strake / deck beam shelf.
A 2.5 litre 60hp marinised Leyland Diesel and mechanical steering gear is available by separate negotiation as are a set of used aluminium framed windows and hatches plus steel fuel tanks and various U bolts etc.
LWL 32.2 '
Beam 12.6 '
The hull could be launched and delivered by sea locally from Wakering in appropriate weather conditions using the yard work boats or loaded and delivered by road at additional cost to the purchaser. Alternatively it could remain at Wakering Boatyard and be worked on there for a monthly storage charge of circa £125 per month plus power etc. The Boatyard manager, is prepared to organise shipwrights and marine trades for a potential purchaser if professional project management services are required to fit out the hull.
The engine, steering system and windows, hatches, tanks etc would be available for a further £1000.
This hull gives a potential professional or amateur purchaser the opportunity to acquire the basis of a very well renowned ocean going cruising yacht if completed to the appropriate specifications and standards.
