"And now for something completely different..." Sunbird in St Malo are delighted to offer this pocket sized modern classic from the pen of Daniel Z Bombigher, best known for the Schpountz series. No1 of only 2 yet built to these plans, the Tender Dream is a charming weekender, beautifully built by Teck et Acajou / St Malo Classic Boat, of strip planked, laminated timber, epoxy coated. She was little used by her first owner, restored by her current (second) owner and currently tucked up in a barn. The owner is relocating abroad and the boat needs just a little pre-season love and attention to be fully ready to enjoy.
100% Bombigher, petit frère de ses Schpountz, ce charmant bateau était construit à St Malo en lamellé collé, traité epoxy. Quelques petites taches à faire avant de le mettre à l'eau ce côtre très individuel. Peu utilisé par 2 propriétaires et hiverné au sec sous couvert près de St Malo.
From a 1995 design, one of only two built to date. Beautiful laminated strip planked, epoxy coated construction. 9hp Yanmar diesel. Marine wc under companionway step. 2 single berths fwd with infill conversion. Saloon table. Galley unit to stbd with hand pumped fresh water to sink. Numerous "Bombigher" features such as cut out heart motifs.
Gaff rig with Dutch style curved gaff. Partially boomed self tacking jib. Beaching legs. Inflatable dinghy and outboard. Log/speed and compass. All over winter cover. New rudder to Bombigher's design crafted for the current owner as the first owner mislaid the original...
Bombigher designs show influences from the Chesapeake and New England as well as from the Netherlands. Not just a miniature Schpountz, but a charming sailing boat which makes one think of Ticonderoga or the schooner America.
In generally lovely condition, with only a few pre-season jobs to do - a seacock to change, a bilge wash through and perhaps paint? Clean the sink, put her back together, launch and enjoy.
The seller will hand over a set of the designer's plans and notes.
