Gaff-rigged Schooner 26ft Pittwater





Gaff-rigged Schooner 26ft – Pittwater

Jameil is a unique gem. A gaff-rigged 26 foot William Atkin “Live Yankee” schooner that is a well-balanced, sturdy, reliable and elegant sailing boat.

I can provide you with a recent survey from February this year.

Built in 1975 in a similar style to the first America’s Cup winner, she has twice won the Sydney Amateur Sailing Club Gaff Regatta.

The strip-planked redwood round bilge hull, is dynel-sheathed to the waterline with a full length keel with lead ballast, a Scott Jutson-designed foil rudder (of Brindabella-fame) and a beautiful raked wine glass transom. The cabin extends right to the gunwhales increasing deck space and cabin space.

She has a 15 HP Yanmar diesel engine and a full set of sails.

She has a poetic line, a remarkably spacious cabin for the small size, with two long and two shorter births. If there are just two of you, three of the berths can be connected to make a very comfortable space.

She has a small galley currently with no stove. We bring a jerrycan of water and use a camping cooker and often choose to cook and dine on deck. She has a head(toilet).

She had a lot of work done in 2 years ago, new stainless steel rigging along with new stainless steel goosenecks and pinrails, and leather-lined gaff saddles. The masts were re-varnished, the plywood decks were re-coated in Dynel and painted.
