About this Jon de Dood International 800 Yawl


Sanderling was completely re-built during the years 1990 and 1996, including a completely new deck, cabin house, interior, and major hull work.  From 2000 to present, the owners sailed her South to cruise the Caribbean, sailing her home several times for maintenance / refitting, particularly in 2011.  All of the work was completed by the current owners, thus full details and documentation are available. She has been maintained in great condition, and systems have been upgraded, including a new Beta 50hp diesel in 2014, new shaft in 2017, a propane heater, and a  watermaker, among many items.  Sanderling is very well equipped and is now available to take her next owners safely to distant shores in a well equipped, comfortable vessel. 


The interior of Sanderling is beautifully detailed with raised panel doors and lockers, and rich mahogany joinerwork combined with white "Herreshoff" style bulkheads.  With the exception of two major bulkheads, the interior was completely built new by the current owners in the major re-fit.  Sanderling is also somewhat unique for her time as she is a center cockpit design.  The hard dodger were added more recently by the current owners.

Starting at the forward companionway, the galley is to port and well equipped with excellent storage lockers.  A gimbaled 3 burner FORCE 10 propane stove with an oven is forward. Along the aft bulkhead in the countertop is a large ice box withSEAFROST refrigeration, and two sinks near the companionway.

Opposite the galley, to starboard, is a very comfortable quarter berth.  This is great berth for the off watch when sailing overnight.  Aft of the berth is a passageway to the aft cabin, with engine room access to the right and a work bench outboard.

Forward of the galley and quarter berth is the main cabin.  Settee / berths are port and starboard and covered in light green Ultra-suede. Storage lockers are outboard of each berth as well as underneath.  A dining table is in the middle which hinges against the mast to save on space.

Most forward is a spacious head area.  A shower is included as well as a vanity and sink, and a Lavac marine toilet.  A door in the forward bulkhead provides access to the deck locker/ anchor rode locker.

The aft cabin is accessed via the passageway mentioned above, as well as its own companionway.  There are wide single berths port and starboard with a bureau in between.  Forward of the port berth is a head area with a Lavac marine toilet and a vanity sink.  Forward of the starboard berth is the navigation table and console of electronic equipment.

Most ports are opening and have screens, as well as the overhead hatches.

Additional Information

Sanderling received a very extensive re-built and re-fit by the current owners between the years 1990 and 1997.  The deck was removed, as well as the interior except for 2 major bulkheads.  After hull repairs of numerous frames and several planks being replaced, she was completely re-fastened.

An all new interior was built for Sanderling with minimal alterations from the original.  Primarily, the pilot berth to starboard was eliminated, creating a larger settee / berth and storage areas outboard.  The new interior actually has more detailing than the original, including raised panel solid doors and cabinets.

The deck as well was completely replaced, including new cabin houses and cockpit. Bronze opening ports replaced the original fixed ports.  All seams along the cabin top edges are fiberglassed.  In this first re-fit, the original teak decking was put back down, however, after cruising South 2 winters, the owners removed the teak in 2004, and now the deck covering is fiberglass with a non-skid surface. 

All systems were updated by total replacement of wiring, plumbing and mechanical and electrical components.  The engine was re-built, and now a new Beta diesel has been installed.  Rigging has all been replaced and the mainmast was rebuilt at this time.

The owners sailed North in 1998, and won "Best of Festival" award in the Mahone Bay Wooden Boat Show in  Nova Scotia..   They sailed South to the Caribbean in 2000, and continued to cruise Southern waters for many years.  In 2004, after returning to Maine, The deck work was done, plus the hard dodger and hard bimini were added.  Also, upgrades were made to other systems including solar panels, a wind generator and a new windlass.

After sailing Sanderling home to Maine in 2010, after several more years of cruising south to the Western Caribbean and Central America, the owners put the vessel through another major re-fit, completed in 2011.  At this time the bottom planking was completely wooded and the application of a mechanically fastened (monel staples) fiberglass 4 oz cloth and then 3 coats of epoxy resin was applied, finished with a coat of Interprotect 2000 epoxy barrier coating.  The fiberglass covering was applied as a protective covering for her continued travels to southern waters.  Additional work included the spraying of  new Awl-Grip coatings for the hull topsides, deck and cabin structures as well as all of the spars.  Systems again were updated and re-fit as needed. 

Sanderling again traveled South over the next few years, and the new Beta 50 hp diesel was installed in the Spring of 2014 in North Carolina.  She has now returned to Maine, as the owners have brought to an end their distance cruising plans.  With the exception that her hull is in need of painting that is planned for this off-season, Sanderling is truly ready to take her next owners on far adventures.
