This is a Philip L. Rhodes stock design, number c634, hull #3, built in the Netherlands, by Hollandia Shipyard in Woubriugge, Netherlands and originally named as Temptress. She was imported by Reisinger Marine Sales Co. in Tappahonnock, VA. She has a full keel with cutaway forefoot, with the attached rudder hung on the keel. The cockpit has shallow lockers port and starboard and a lazerette aft. The trunk cabin is stepped and the foredeck uncluttered. Access to the cabin is via hinged, louvered doors. Below there are settees port and starboard, with an ice box on the port side near the main bulkhead and a galley sink on the starboard side. There is stowage bins beneath the settees, and lockers outboard. The cushions are either recovered or remanufactured. The companionway steps are removable to provide access to the engine room. There is an enclosed head compartment forward of the main salon on the starboard side and a hanging locker opposite. There is a V-berth forward with water and holding tanks beneath as well as storage. There is an overhead hatch for ventilation. The hull is built of clear 7.8” African mahogany, with edge glued seams above the waterline and caulked below – fastened with bronze screws and plugged. Select steam bent white oak 1-1/4” square beams are on 9” centers with SS strapping at hard bends. The transom is select African mahogany, double planked construction. The interior is mahogany varnished and the bulkheads are mahogany painted. The decks are marine hardwood plywood. Shelves are Oregon Pine. Carlins are white oak heartwood. Cabin sides, toe rails, coamings, hatches, seats, trim are African mahogany. Cockpit sole & bridgedeck is teak. The stern, keel, sternpost, floors, knees, deadwood are select white oak heartwood. The hull, including the iron ballast and the topsides, have been fiberglassed with a layer of mat, roving and cloth set in WEST System epoxy. The decks and cabin structure have been treated similarly without the layer of mat. The cockpit has been glassed but not before the rubrail and toerail were removed. The hull above the waterline and the entire deck have been Awlgripped in the fall of 2008. A new beige nonskid was applied. All exterior brightwork has been cleaned, sanded and treated with Sikkens Cetol. All deck hardware (cleats, rubbing strakes, trim, chocks, vents, etc.) have been re-chromed and installed on the deck with new caulking in the fall of 2008. In addition, the large ports (4) typical of Rhode’s boats in the main salon are new. The mast is a 7/8” fractional rig built hollow of Sitka Spruce and painted. It is deck stepped. A condition and evaluation survey was completed in August of 2001. It was deemed satisfactory and now a great deal of additional work has been completed. This is a stunning boat with a beautiful, timeless exterior finish guaranteed to turn heads
