Laurent Giles Bermudan Yawl 57 - Sails of Dawn from 1969. One of 'Jack' Giles finest and last designs, Sails Of Dawn, took the owner and 'Jack' some four years of discussion and design, to produce a yacht that had RORC class rating and was also a practical world cruiser, also to be built to Lloyds 100A1. Astonishing for any period in boat building, especially as she is one of the last wooden yachts made and the fact Lloyds knew nothing about aluminum masts at the time. Built by McGruer and Co on the Clyde. This beautiful classic yacht has a full set of provenance documents and has featured in Yachting Monthly in 1970. Unfortunately after the original owner passed away the vessel fell into neglect and it was left uncared for. The current owner saved her from total loss and has been carefully restoring her to her former glory. Much of the big items have been done and for personal reasons the owner has to pass the task of finishing her onto someone else. The hull has been completely re caulked, every other frame has been re fastened, and the butts, although not required. The deck is perfect as is all teak work, coachroofs are new, engine has been totally rebuilt - she is like a battle ship, Burmese teak on laminated Canadian rock elm frames (which are perfect) bronze floors throughout!
