This sailboat has a one of a kind history. Portobello is ideal as a restoration project for a discerning yachtsman. ***

Featured on the cover of Sea Spray magazine February 1966, Portobello is a 43′ yawl sailboat designed and built by W. J. Endean who sailed her to the US from Portobello, NZ. Completed by Mr. Endean in October 1964, she took 18 months to build.

Portobello’s hull and decks are strip planked in western red cedar. She has been skinned with Epiglass Dynel both inside and out. Coamings and upper desk joinery are in teak harvested from the Muritai, an old Wellington NZ ferry and Navy minesweeper.

All cabin joinery is mahogany. 8 full sized built-in bunks and 3 private bunks. The stern cabin is a workshop and sail store.

Powered by a Isuzu diesel 3AB1. She can carry enough fuel to cover 2000 miles and 200 gallons of fresh water.

For day sailing, she is easily managed by two, but for racing a crew of eight is required.

In need of TLC, this vintage treasure is marina docked and available for viewing. You’ll need imagination, but upon inspection, you’ll see that she has good bones and fine details. Restored, this beauty would command a six figures price tag .
