Motor BoatsavailableSilvers TSDY Ormidale 38United Kingdom
Classic motor yacht built by James Silver Ltd in 1958. This is a stunning example of the highly desirable Ormidale class and was built in Rosneath to a James Bain design. The hull is mahogany planking on oak frames and the hull topsides are a combination of teak and mahogany. The wheelhouse its self is built using mahogany faced ply on Iroko frames.
The yacht has seen extensive renovation over the last 5 years with repaint to hull, renovation of wheelhouse, new batteries and instruments, re-upholstery, carpets and galley equipment. even the ballast has been removed, cleaned, bilges painted and ballast re-stacked.
The engines are Thornycroft 2.5lt diesels rated 60hp per side. This will give comfortable cruising of 6 knots. Maximum hull design speed is 8 knots but boat travels more comfortably and economically at the 6 knots.
Vessel can sleep 6 if required but more comfortable with 4 persons. She has been sailed extensively on the West coast of Scotland and the islands.
If you are looking for a comfortable, "Classic" motor yacht without the hardship of renovation then look no further. This well maintained and much loved craft is ready to go.
