Discussion in 'Feadship Yacht' started by iaranicki, Jul 20, 2006.
it is in very good condition as you can see.
he certainley looks like a feadship from the late fifties ...I'd be really interested in seeing other photos of her superstructure and pilot house to use as reference in restoring my 1961 61ft feadship..where is this one lying?
thanks for this Nice photo of the Pilot house - just want I want ...any chance of having some others taken from sides front and rear etc? the name of the vessel and approx length would be useful, because perhaps Van lent could then send me copies of her plans
I am not sure if she is a Feadship, could be some other yacht from the 50-60:s, maybe an Esterel?
I guess this is the same yacht, I took this picture in St Jean Cap Ferrat recently.
I think you are correct that she isnt a feadship and coincidentally I had spotted this pic in a for sale ad a year or so ago
That looks like an old Halverson to me they were built in Sydney Australia in the 50s and 60s I do believe that they stopped building them sometime in the mid 70s. Their most popular were in the 45ft range but there were a few that were larger.
I dont know much about Halveson but I thought they were wooden , then GRP?
I know they were mostly timber but I like that when they tried to build with other materials it was the begining of the end. Don't really know much about them but do remember seeing many of them when I was a kid and they did look like the boat in the photo.
hi - you may well be right but I doubt that any boats were built in steel in OZ
might be a super van craft
