Beautiful example of the famous Fleur de Lys custom series built by Dagless Ltd shipyard during the 1970’s. Extensively refitted and presently used as a very successful crewed charter vessel around the Tuscan coast.

DERAMORE is a 23.77m Dagless classic motor yacht built in 1971 and most recently refitted in 2009. She was built in England to Lloyds’s specifications by the famous Dagless yard and has benefitted from continuous updates and maintenance throughout her life.

Internally, DERAMORE sleeps up to eight guests along with a full crew. Her accommodation includes 2 master double ensuite cabins decorated in oak, mahogany and cream ostrich skin with detailing provided by classic marine charts from the British admiralty, 2 double cabins (pullman style) panelled throughout in English Oak, 2 bathrooms panelled in mahogany with full length baths, 2 shower-rooms with laquered paintwork. Her Main Saloon features a Plasma TV, DVD and cinema surround stereo linked to a PC with 1000 hrs of music as well as mobile internet access. The dining room decorated with maritime oil paintings and seating trimmed with tan leather. It is possible to dine outside on the aft deck with teak deck furniture. On the upper deck, DERAMORE provides space with loungers, sofas and armchairs and large amounts of deck space for sunbathing.


In 1945 it was normal for the owner of a company to use his own name, as the name for his company Dagless was no exception. He was a local man who saw the need in a small market town dominated by agriculture to offer a specialist skill of building cold stores in which to store the local produce. The company developed into house building and was responsible for local prestigious housing developments.

Mr Dagless had a private passion for boats and used some of his craftsmen to renovate a 35ft motor yacht . When other yacht owners saw the standard of renovation achieved they asked for their boats to have similar refits. It wasn’t long before word spread further afield and a new industry was formed.

From 1960-1980 the company built some of the finest Motor-Yachts in the world. It was a company that people were very proud to work within and be associated with. Many of these yachts are still in service today recognisable by the Fleur De Lys symbol depicted in gold on their stern.

The Yacht building business carried on successfully until ironically Ted Heath became Prime Minister. He devastated the luxury yacht business by abolishing the marine mortgage and raising VAT to 25% on luxury items. The heart was ripped out of a once very fine business. Survival was the only criteria, the business wound down loosing large sums of money on the way.
