Tina Of Melbourne, a stunning S & S 37 One Ton Cup design, is very proudly and exclusively listed for sale with YOTI.
Representing an almost unique opportunity in pedigree, style and in the leading edge in design from a bygone era, this yacht is one of only two of this design ever constructed and was built to one of the first 'One ton rule' designs which arguably paved the way for the S & S 34 and the early Swan designs.
Designed primarily for competitive offshore racing, we challenge any racing or cruising sailor alike, to sit in this beautiful cockpit, take the wheel in one hand and not fall in love. The yachts history tells of just a few long term owners who have been entrusted with the stewardship of such a special vessel, and the evidence of care will be proven on inspection.
Tina Of Melbourne was built using full boat length, 1.5 inch planks of Canadian Oregon below the waterline and Californian Oregon above the waterline due to the weight saving of the lighter Californian variety. She is built using splined carvel construction, the splines being of Sitka Spruce. Full length large load bearing stringers run fastened to the ribs spreading loads fore and aft, a bronze structural ring runs from the chainplates and joins the bronze keel grid frame which sits atop the vessels backbone made from West African Mahogony.
The yacht enjoyed new Dynex Dux rigging in 2012 along with the mast and boom being fully removed / stripped / re-sprayed / rewired, the teak deck and cabin top were replaced around eight years ago, also in 2012 the topsides were re-sprayed, below the waterline was stripped and re-sprayed, all winches re-chromed and new high quality upholstery added. Her engine was fully and professionally re-built by Bukh in 2014 with warranty remaining plus a much longer list of very significant updates were also completed just last year including a brand new comprehensive sail wardrobe by Doyle, full re-wiring and re-plumbing and new B&G instrumentation.
