Wooden ships comments on this Philip Rhodes 1952 Windward 33
An interesting yacht from the board of Philip Rhodes and built in Calafornia in 1952, known as a Windward 33.
Imported to UK by a previous owner in about 1989 and used very little since then. The current owner purchased the boat in 2006 and set about the major refit that was required. He managed to get the boat sailing and took her to the current berth where she has remained ever since. Unfortunately due to various other commitments he has not been able to finish the work he started.
Planked in pitch pine on oak frames.
Sheathed plywood deck with varnished teak coackroof coamings.
Varnished spruce mast and boom with sa good North Sails mainsail. standing rigging
Interior has been largely stripped out but all the original joinery is available. 5 berths in saloon and forepeak with a quarter berth. American designed sea toilet and spirit stove.
Kubota diesel engine not currently installed in the boat is available.
B&G sounder and log
This is an interesting and pretty boat, reportedly very fast, in need of an enthusiatic new owner to finish off the work that has been started and get her sailing. The hull appears tight and the tidal berth that has been her home for several years now has kept her in good condition.
