1964 Feadship Classic Canoe Stern
|Propulsion Type||Twin Inboard|
|History - Yachting Magazine (March 1965)|
When a boat is a definite expression of her owner, his personality, his ideas, his special requirements, his background, and his feelings for things nautical, she inevitably takes on added interest. For this reason, EXACT, a handsome vessel that would attract attention under any circumstances, is one of the most notable yachts of recent seasons. She is well worth a study by anyone who appreciates the thought that can be put into a boat, whether she be an outboard fishing skiff, an ocean racing auxiliary, a one-design sailboat, a family cabin cruiser or a luxury yacht.
|Current Condition - Major Refit/Rebuild Required|
As mentioned in the 1965 Yachting Magazine article, this gorgeous Feadship was originally launched as EXACT in 1964 and specially designed to be the committee yacht for the 1964 America's Cup race. She was later named ANOATOK where she was lovingly owned by the same family for 22 years. She is well know having cruised extensively along the Eastern Seaboard, Gulf of Mexico and throughout the Caribbean.
She is now available for sale for the new owner to continue the refit & restore her to the grace and elegance she deserves. Currently all of the carpeting has been removed and some cabinetry and floorboards in the lower cabins are up to access the inside hull plating for inspection.
It has been estimated that at least 1/3 of the bottom needs re-plating. The bow area in particular needs a major amount of frames and plate work. The hull will need to be partially restored on location so she can float and be transported to a facility for refit
The deck is also in need or replacement and water has leaked within forward in the dinning room and crew areas.
This is a mechanically sound vessel having regular maintenance but she requires some attention to the hull plating and pipe work as would be expected in a vessel of this vintage.
She is currently out of the water at Bradford Marine Bahamas and easily inspected.
|Inspection made May 16, 2015|
On May 16th, 2015 a personal inspection was made onboard. Over 200 pictures were taken documenting her current condition both on the interior, exterior, hull, flybridge, engine room and running gear.
These pictures are available upon request and I am happy to discuss the overall condition and requirements of the rebuild.
This classic canoe stern Feadship offers excellent potential. Plate work on the hull is required prior to relocating her.
