Dress yourself up and sail through the summer in your own bubble

White Tie is a 25ft Top Hat design by UK designers Illingworth & Primrose and built by Keith Atkinson . The build request came from a UK person living in NZ and Keith liked the design so much he built a further six boats. Launched in 1963 White Tie is built of multi skins of mahogany planking fastened to transverse steam bent timbers with fore and aft stringers and GRP sheathing.

White Tie has been owned by Don Stewart since the 1st July 1973 and was lovingly used and maintained by him throughout his life. Sadly Don passed away recently and his brothers Peter and David are keen to find a new owner who will cherish her as their brother did. They are realistic on price.

The attached photos were taken in July 2021 when White Tie was lifted for her usual maintenance programme at Half Moon Bay marina.

Peter and David have searched through Don’s papers and discovered many detailed records regarding her ownership and maintenance history. Some highlights being:

  • In 2002 the boat was repowered with a new Yanmar Diesel Model 2GMOF 18HP 2Cyl. – the hours are less than 200.
  • Over 2014/15 she was subject to a major refit and from the records Don maintained, no expense was spared.
  • She has an Isotherm fridge/freezer,
  • Raymarine GPS chart-plotter, VHF,  Radio, self-steering tiller and numerous other gear.
  • New rigging was fitted in 2014/15 and also as I understand, sails.

White Tie is in beautiful condition and a delightful little classic to enjoy. She can be viewed on her Orakei Marina Berth A18.

What better time to have a beautiful little boat that can easily be sailed through the summer in your own little bubble.
