BROKER'S COMMENTS

PAS SEUL is a fine example of Robert Clark’s relationship through the 1950 and 60s with the renowned skills of Dutch yacht builders in steel, resulting in sleek and strong race winners that could be pushed hard. In original ownership a regular on the 1960s RORC offshore circuit, she completed the 1963 and 1965 Fastnet Races, then cruised extensively from her River Hamble mooring. Rescued by her present owner from a less happy period, an extensive restoration gives PAS SEUL a new lease of life: a delightfully practical and easily handled classic yacht with modern comforts, and a relatively low-maintenance possibility for reliving her racing days on the Mediterranean and other classic regatta circuits.

OWNER'S COMMENTS

"When I found her she had fallen into disrepair and a previous falling out of owners left her without an engine or winches, her spars were broken, her interior in pieces, her deck rotten. She has such sweet lines; it was such a tragic waste that I set about restoring her and over some years she has been completely rebuilt to a high specification.

"You come to realise through investigating her history, and more recently sailing her about the south of the UK, that you are her custodian, more than her owner: there is barely a weekend goes by that someone doesn’t come up and say they know the boat, or sailed on her, or at least make admiring remarks as she’s tied up alongside.

"She has the sleekest and most classic lines and sails like a true classic yacht should. She’s now 58 years young, and I’d like to think the work we’ve done to her will keep her going well into her centenary. A new owner will have the benefit of enjoying this lovely yacht, which will offer years more pleasure."

RESTORATION

From 2009 until 2017 PAS SEUL underwent a painstaking keel up restoration and rebuild. The hull, which was still completely intact, was shot blasted internally, painted and spray foam insulated, the deck was replaced, and coach roof restored, a new, more comfortable interior installed, new engine, new electronics, new spars, new sails, new deck hardware, new winches. The restoration process, which included finding the original drawings at the UK National Maritime Museum, Greenwich, can be seen at PAS SEUL's website: http://www.leeonsea.com

HISTORY

PAS SEUL’s commissioning owners (a quartet of members of the Perkins builders merchants family when their part of the business now known as Travis Perkins was named Ingram Perkins) were replacing their C.A. Nicholson/ Clare Lallow 35 ft sloop SUNDEW. Perhaps their “Did Not Finish” in the stormy 1961 Fastnet Race persuaded them of the need for something longer – and faster.

The builder, Gebr. Van Dam & Zn of Alphen aan den Rijn, midway between Amsterdam and Rotterdam, was one of a select group of Dutch yachtbuilders who exclusively built the Robert Clark office’s steel designs at this time, almost as exclusively for English clients. One imagines the rapport between designer and builder was excellent, as were the resulting yachts.

Originally powered by an extensive Ratsey & Lapthorn sail wardrobe and a 2-cylinder Coventry Victor 14/16 hp petrol engine, PAS SEUL was River Hamble based at least for her first decade, a regular participant in the Royal Ocean Racing Club’s offshore races, including two Fastnets, and a West Country cruiser out of St Mawes.

From 1971 ownership transferred to a trio of River Hamble yachtsmen, Messrs A.N. Penfold, C.G. Ford and P.K. Hopgood, later joined by N.L Williams. Under these and subsequent owners PAS SEUL is known to have cruised extensively including in the Baltic and the Mediterranean.

After a partial refit in the early 2000s she somehow became neglected and when rescued in present ownership required a major restoration of the steel hull and coach house, the complete rebuilding of the deck and interior, and all new systems. It's been a long labour of love.
