About this Classic Yacht West Solent One Design

English

Remarks :

West Solent One Design designed and built by the Berthon Boat Co. Ltd in 1927.

Yacht No. W22.

The class was designed by H. Jacobs and H.G. May of Berthons as a cost effective cruiser racer for the Royal Lymington Yacht Club.  At the time a new W class could be bought for £600, a similar 6 meter yacht would have cost £1500 so they were well received.  A total of 32 boats were built for the UK market, 5 built and shipped to Argentina and one built under licence in Bombay.  The design was adopted by the Royal Burnham Yacht Club where it was known as the Royal Burnham Restricted Class.

The WSOD, also known as the W class, has seen a huge resurgence in recent years with a number of original boats given professional rebuilds, as well as one or two new examples being built.  They are superb boats with exceptionally beautiful lines and have proven to be excellent classic regatta boats that only need a small crew and are still very competitive.

This is a very cost effective boat with which to take part in the big classic regattas and race amongst the finest classic yachts in the world while possibly having even more fun than those owners.

Underwent a refit by the Cantiere Navale Dell’Argentario in Italy, a yard known for working one some of the finest classic yachts in the Mediterannean.  The refit included a complete new deck and full cosmetic job to get her ready for the Med classic regatta circuit.  The previous owner undertook major structural repairs between 2010 and 2015 with a new mast, new structural floors and mast step and new keel bolts.

A very fine looking yacht that has competed successfully in classic regattas over the last few years.

Construction

Planked in red pine, a slow grown resinous pine that is very durable.

Sawn oak frames with 2 steamed oak intermediates.  Copper rivet fastened to the intermediate timbers and bronze screw fastened into the sawn frames.

External lead ballast keel of 2 tons fastened with bronze keel bolts.

Structural floors are a mixture.  Some original wrought iron strap floors across the centreline fastened through the sawn oak frames with bronze bolts.  Several galvanised steel floors fitted in a previous ownership.  A number of heavy section laminated wooden floors midships and forward fitted by the previous owner carry the extended iroko mast step spreading the loads of the rig.

New deck laid in 2020.  Straight laid T&G cedar deck planking screwed and glued to the oak deck beams.  Deck then sheathed and painted.  Varnished teak covering boards all round with a neat scrubbed  teak toe rail set on the inboard edge of the covering board spanning the join between that and the deck planking.

Elegant non-self draining cockpit with curved teak coamings.  New scrubbed teak bench thwarts and cockpit sole grating.

Tiller steering with a recent iroko rudder.  Bronze tiller stock.
