The Alan Buchanan ' Bonito' must have been one of the first glass fibre boat hulls to be built on a production line. After many very classic wooden designs the hull shape was well proven and so a mould was produced in the mid 50's. Seamaster built all Bonitos until production finished in 1963.
They built a composite construction with wooden stringers running length ways to stiffen the boat. In reality most boats of that era were over engineered due to lack of experience, however the result was a strong and stiff structure.
The hulls were then passed to Stebbings of Burnham on Crouch who built the timber deck and interior with traditional methods and materials. The deck was made up of 5/8th teak on a 3/8 ply laid over a mahogany frame bolted to a plywood flange built in to the hull.
The coach roof was made of 3/4 inch marine ply again fixed to a mahogany frame.
The interior is traditionally set up to sleep 5.
The result was a boat with beautiful lines and sparkling performance.
This yacht has enjoyed a continuous rolling program of maintenance, even down to rudder bushes for perfect feel when under way. Records and 5 year old survey can be seen on viewing boat.
Rumour has it that Simon Le Bon enjoyed this Classic Yacht in the Mediterannean but lets not bang the drum on that!
2003 Survey states ; Patiki is a seaworthy vessel in good condition. It is considerably over built by modern standards. The recent refit appears to have been carried out with some care and skill.
