Red Bank Yacht Works 45


Reasonable Offers Considered 

One way to describe this fine yacht is "Time Warp". This yacht has been meticulously restored to its original style and beauty right down to the period fans. Yet with the addition of a few modern features to add to her comfort and convenience without taking away from her 1925 charm. This yacht has been a show winner (most resent at the 2012 St. Michaels Wooden Boat Show) however, she was rebuilt to be a users boat and not just a yacht to admire.

Red Bank Yacht Works factory was located in Red Bank, New Jersey until the 1950's when it was distroyed by a fire and the company shut down production.

She will turn heads in every harbor and commands the attention everywhere you go.

If you are in the market for a true classic motor yacht

this is a must see.

When stepping aboard "Old Dad" one takes a trip back in time when yachts were grand and when everyone would take time to watch one pass on by. This yacht is that of a time gone by. With it's abundant use of brass and bronze fittings and the beautiful woodwork both inside and out one can only wonder just whom may have walked her decks.

The decks both fore and aft are quite spacious. There is a full width awning that affixes to the aft end of the wheelhouse and extends to the transom providing plenty of shade for those hot summer days. Entrance to the wheelhouse from the aft deck is provided for with a pair of doors both port and starboard. Access from the foredeck is made easy by a set of small door sized windows that open out to provide both access and great ventilation. 

Once inside the wheelhouse you are greeted with a 360 degree view of your surroundings through both opening windows and doors. The helm is located to port and flanked with bench seats to both port and starboard. The helm has remained much the way it was constructed, complete with the original throttle and shifter. The beautifully finished wood provides a feeling of warmth throughout with accents of color. The ceiling has been restored to the original style with a white ceiling and natural wood beams. 

From the wheelhouse you enter the aft cabin though a set of wood doors and down 2 steps. Looking aft you are greated by a queen sized aft berth which wraps around forming a seat on the starboard side. On the port side (foot end of the berth) are sliding drop paneled doors that provide for a large storage area. Just forward of this is a large dresser and then through a sliding drop paneled door you enter the owners private head. This area is complete with head, sink, ample counter and storage space and shower. To round out the owners stateroom to the starboard side of the steps is a large hanging locker.

Moving forward from the wheel house you again step down 3 steps into the galley / dining area. The gallery is quite large and located to port, with beautiful burnt orange tiled counter and back splash. This area contains a large amount of storage both above and below the counter and has a new under counter refrigerator. For the cooking end of business there is a 4 burner propane stove with oven, complete with range hood and microwave. To help with clean up there is a conveniently located trash receptacle hidden beneath the counter. Moving to starboard is the dinette table with bench seating. This area has many opening ports and windows as well as a butterfly hatch that serves both this area and the seating area forward.

Moving forward from here you pass through a set of drop paneled pocket doors into the salon or seating area. As is most of this yacht, this cabin is finished completely in wood with opening windows that run the entire length of the ceiling with the butterfly hatch at the aft end of the cabin. These seats may double as bunks for extra overnight guests with a hanging locker at the forward end of the cabin and drawered storage located beneath both settees.

Located just forward of this cabin is the common head. There is a large counter finished with matching tile to the galley counter and accents used thoughout. This head area also contains a shower and head and plenty of storage.

This yacht has been beautifully restored to her original beauty and waiting for the next owner to love her as the past owns have. With hopes that
