TOTAL RESTORATION -
BETTER THAN NEW!!!
This Vagabond 47 was built in 1975 by Blue Water Yacht Builders Limited of Taiwan. She was designed by William Garden as a long keel offshore cruiser and was built of heavy hand laid fiberglass as fashionable in the 70's. The vessel was purchased as a derelict by her present owner in 2008 and transported to Cincinnati, Ohio where she was stored on the hard. She was completely stripped and rebuilt, the only original components being the fiberglass hull and deck shell. The hull and deck underwent fiberglass repairs where needed and were reinforced at high-stress locations such as chain plates and thru/hull locations. The entire hull and deck topsides were taken down to bare glass. After a new, heavy layer of gel coat was applied, she was primed and painted with a 2 part epoxy paint system (Interlux Perfection). After being peeled, the hull below the waterline was re-coated with 5 layers of epoxy resin, five coats of barrier paint and three coats of Sea Hawk ablative bottom paint. A new rudder was built. The new ash and teak interior was professionally built, far exceeding, both in appearance and quality, the original as-new interior. New bulkheads, chain plates, engine mounts and mast compression posts were manufactured and installed. All deck and hull attachments are re-enforced with heavy, stainless steel backing plates. The engine, shafting, prop and generator are all new and have been professionally installed. Fuel tankage is new and built of heavy aluminum, new potable water tanks are food-grade stainless steel. The AC and DC electrical systems and plumbing systems are fully documented and professionally installed. There is no wood on the exterior of the yacht, all wood-like material is synthetic, UV-resistant PVC-based product requiring little-to-no maintenance. She has new aluminum masts, Schaefer roller-furling booms, sails, standing rigging and running rigging. A full complement of Raymarine electronics, including hydraulic auto-pilot, have been installed. The list is extensive and all work and expenditures have been documented by the owner. Take the time to watch the video of the owner's explanation and all of the photos posted here. A complete photographic history of the demolition and rebuild are also available for the serious buyer’s review.
