Wooden ships comments on this Tumlare project
Tumlare hull for restoration.
This distinctive yacht, developed from the Scandinavian Skerry Cruiser type, was designed in the 1930’s. In UK, a class grew up in Aldeburgh and St Mawes but the design really came to fame after Adlard Coles won the 1950 Trans-Atlantic Race in the slightly larger (32’) Cohoe.
The Tumlare has a slim, slippery hull with elongated forward sections and the distinctive canoe stern with stern-hung rudder.
She has a high aspect fractional Bermudian rig with the fore-stay set well inboard from the stemhead.
Larch planking on steel angle frames with intermediate steam bent oak timbers. Galvanised steel plate floors.
Tongue and groove pine deck, sheathed and painted.
This is a bare hull but still has the sweet lines of the Tumlare design and has not lost her shape.
Comes with a steel cradle. Call us for more information and photos.
