I would also appreciate if anyone could give me any idea of what I should do in order to establish whether this is a good sailing boat. I am aware that in Spain an abandoned boat like this needs to have a general plan and sheer lines for it to be registered. Whilst this seems a dream of a lifetime coming true all your help is very much appreciated. Originally Posted by viking north First hire a good surveyor, don't be tight with the funds doing it. Obviously, a major project, at best, but when comparing to a build-from-scratch boat(new build) it would save you time.
When making potentially dangerous or financial decisions, always employ and consult appropriate professionals. Throughout the cabin the use of solid and teak faced ply and mahogany floor create a soft and warm feel to this very compact and versatile cruising yacht.
There are 3 steps from the Wheelhouse into the saloon with an L shaped galley to starboard. Her owner has also fitted a small solid fuel stove (with removable chimney outlet) to a hearth situated between the galley and single corner seat on her starboard side. Centre stage is a well maintained half folding cabin table allowing space for the double to be made. Burgess Marine is proud to have been chosen by the Owner’s representatives to provide marine engineering expertise for the refit of a Classic 1938, 64m Motor Yacht SHEMARA, during its three year refit program.

The luxury yacht ALME SOL displayed on this page is merely informational and she is not necessarily available for yacht charter or for sale, nor is she represented or marketed in anyway by CharterWorld. Are there any specific coefficients and parameters I should be considering before doing anything with it?
Can anyone shed any advice on how to go about drawing these plans if I am unable to source the original ones? Dig up her history--Owner---builder--why she's not being used---dig dig dig --the more you find out and post the better. The key question for me would be useable plate thickness of hull after sandblasting in & out. Do you have any clues about the seaworthiness of this boat and whether it could be used as an ocean going boat. Adjacent is her V berth double which is very light and airy with a clinker fashioned side panel in faced ply. Having successfully towed the ship to Porchester the Project Team has Seconded Burgess Marine’s Technical Director, Mr Ray Cutts, to a permanent project team role responsible for marine engineering, structural repairs and renewals, and mechanical installation. We look forward to overcoming the challenges and playing a big part in creating the finished article. In recent years we’ve completed works for Southampton Yacht Services, Pendennis, HYS, Trimline Superyacht Interiors, and onboard the charter yacht Infinity, the sailing yacht Hetairos, the J Class S.Y. Technical teams work internationally, and have extensive as well as proven Superyacht experience, supporting Pendennis, SYS, and HYS in the UK.

ALME SOL, a Jongert 31T, is a truly traditional Jongert with a classical Mahogany interior. Jongert Design Team is also associated with the yacht wider design collaboration for this boat. You need to give the members a good base of info to work from otherwise it's almost impossible to receive good reliable and detailed replys. Have you any details that could help me in sourcing the designs or someone who knows more about it. The project has the potential to represent a major element of Burgess Marine’s ship repair and refit work between 2012 and 2013.
Recently Burgess Marine has worked onboard the motor yacht Bystander, the sailing yacht Velsheda, the Hetairos superyacht, and the charter yacht Infinity as well as a 44m Feadship and a 64m Classic Motor Yacht. Burgess Marine will be available to support the Superyacht Cup, the J Class regatta, and the Superyacht fleet on, and around, the Thames, in partnership with MGMT, during the summer 2012 Olympic period. Infinity’s decks are constructed of marine plywood, with 15 mm Teak planked Brimania.
She also has an efficient range of 1300 miles whilst motoring at her cruising speed of 9 knots. If you have the skills to refit such a boat you should be able to judge the welding & fitting quality.
I am trying to establish whether it will be a viable project to restore it and fit an engine and would eventually used it as my home. The Portsmouth facility is ideal for both planned Class certified dockings or emergency repairs. The magnificent yacht Infinity provides spacious accommodation for up to 12 charter guests in 6 cabins and has a crew capacity of 7.
For example if she was plated with a heavier plate than deisgned for above the waterline including superstructure she could be a top heavy pig and you could be caught in a catch 22 situation. The project is a once in a lifetime challenge, a unique opportunity, and a significant step forward for both Burgess Marine and independent Superyacht refit works here in the UK. We all believe that this refit will change the way Owners look at the major overhauls of their yachts, and that’s a very exciting prospect”. This in turn could sink her too far past her designed waterline which already could be the case and so on.
Not to discourage you she could be ok but without a set of design plans it's always a big gamble.--Geo.
If all seems well to this point and you really want to build a boat, start determining her characteristics, once blasted.
I am trying to investigate if anyone could help in identifying whether she is a boat made by a boatyard or whether it was made by a keen enthusiast.
