Designed in 1938 by renowned naval architect C. Raymond Hunt, the Concordia Yawl is arguably the most successful large one design wooden boat in history. Originally designed as a racing boat that could double as a cruiser, the Concordia Yawl has become something of a legend. The first four boats built in Massachusetts were followed by a partnership with Abeking and Rasmussen in Germany that resulted in another ninety nine boats [total 103] - all but two of which are in existence today.
Concordia Yawl #39 WASABI (previously DONEGAL) was built in 1956. She was repowered in 2007 with a new Yanmar diesel, is well equipped with up to date electronics, has new sails with a roller furling jib, new cushions and covers, the deck canvas has been replaced with fiberglass, original winches replaced with self-tailers, and in short has received all of the upgrades Concordia Yawls are known to benefit from. WASABI also features a bronze 3 blade feathering Luke propeller and a beautiful Luke soapstone cabin heater.
WASABI’s structural condition appears sound. The bilges have been recently painted with red lead, the planking above and below the waterline is fair and shows no outward signs of loose fasteners or broken frames. All seams are tight and bottom and topside paint are being renewed in May.
Cosmetically all exterior varnish is sound. Toe rails and masts were recently stripped and received eight coats of new varnish. The varnish on the house sides is a bit “brushy” but easily blocked flat, and at some point the original house-top canvas will need replacing.
In summary, WASABI is a wonderfully original Concordia Yawl, priced to sell and in sail-away condition. She is located near Boothbay, ME and her owners are willing to consider trades.
