“Don Jose” is a beautiful and unique classic sloop, built to the highest standards. She is built out of a single Brazilian cedar hardwood tree that was seasoned for 13 years. She was launched in 1982 on the River Plate in Argentina. She is end-for-end planked with no butt straps, tight seamed, with no caulking. She has steamed and laminated frames and is bronze fastened throughout. Stiffness and stability is provided by a 3.6 ton lead fin keel. Designed as a fast and comfortable cruiser, no expense was spared in her construction and most of the fixtures and fittings were hand or purpose built in stainless steel. She has recently undergone a full overhaul, including decks, engine, interior and exterior bright-work. Over £15,000, over and above routine maintenance costs, has been spent over the last 5 years: full engine overhaul and rebuild; complete interior re-work including all upholstery, electrics, new fridge, calorifier and water system. The deck was recovered with epoxy and faired in 2005. All work has been carried out by professional boat builders. She has proved her sea-keeping and safe passage-making qualities. All the original architect build plans are available. Classic wooden sloop is truly a great antique and classic boat.
