Susanna

Thanks to Peter Gregson of Wooden Ships, who sent details of this lovely counter stern, bermudian cutter.

Designed by Norman Dallimore and built by William King & Sons of Burnham on Crouch in 1936.

Susanna measures 33’6" LOD and 38’ LOA, 8’6” beam, 4’6” draft, 6’ headroom, 9 tons TM. Built with 1" pitch pine planking on Canadian rock elm frames, oak floors, her keel is English Elm. Her lead keel is attached by bronze keel bolts and she's copper and bronze fastened throughout. Decks are 1 1/4" solid teak.

She was built to last.



In Peter's own words "Is this not the most exquisite yacht?" - you have to agree without reservation.
