About

This Vertue classic wooden yacht was designed by Jack Laurent Giles and is number 45 in her class. Icebird was built in 1952 in the UK by Aeromarine and is a long keel heavy displacement cutter rigged Bermudan sloop.


Vertues are renowned as tough seaworthy little ships capable of long ocean passages. Icebird has cruised to the West Indies, Newfoundland and the North coast of Iceland. Once described as 'the most perfect small ocean going yacht that has ever been built' by Humphrey Burton in his book 'Vertue XXXV' following his celebrated Atlantic crossing in 1950.

Icebird is a beautiful example of this classic yacht. She comes with the original 'blue book' and the owners listed there have made long and exciting passages.

The engine is a Volvo MD7A 13HP with good access all around.

Icebird is a cutter able to hoist a staysail and a jib and has running backstays tensioned by highfield levers.

A pair of beaching legs can be fitted to allow the vessel to take the ground if required, and a storage cradle is included in the inventory.

The attractive saloon is equipped with a Taylors paraffin heater and an oil lamp. The brass portholes around the cabin add to the feeling of being in a time warp. The present owner has been at pains to enhance the interior and the joinery is of a high standard.

There are two settee berths, one on each side of the snug saloon, there is ample space for two further berths in the forepeak.

The galley is located on the starboard side of the saloon it has a Taylors paraffin cooker with two burners and oven. There is a stainless steel sink with a brass tap. The stove and cabin heater are both fed from a pressure tank.


The rare Baby Blake marine toilet is located in the forepeak.

There is a surprising amount of storage space available despite her apparent small size.

Sails:
1 x main, 3 x jib, 3 x staysail

Instruments:
VHF Radio, depth sounder, log, autohelm, compass

Equipment:
Cradle, beaching legs. Taylors parafin cabin heater, Baby Blake marine toilet.
