Wooden Ships Comments
The Sterling was another of Kim Holmans great designs and is often thought of as the cruising version of the Twister. The same length but with more beam, a fuller bilge and more depth in hold, she is a much more spacious boat below decks, and although not as fast or windwardly as the Twister, she will hold her own and will keep her crew in comfort and safety on a passage.
Bought by the present owner in 2005, she has been well cared for with extensive professional work carried out as required. In 2013 Alan Staley of Faversham surveyed the yacht and carried out some remedial work and there is a full documentation for this work.
A solid and tidy boat and a really good example of the design which needs only some attention to the rigging before the coming season. 2013 survey available. Full documentation of her history including lots of past surveys, original plans and many receipts.
Planked in Iroko below the waterline, mahogany above, all copper fastened to steam bent Canadian Rock Elm timbers.
Mix of grown oak floors and galvanise straps. Galvanised steel strap floors, shot blasted and re-galvanised then replaced with new bolts in 1993.
External Iron ballast keel with forged iron keel bolts. Last drawn and checked in 2005, these were replaced after being hot dipped in pitch for protection.
