HISTORY & DESCRIPTION:

The Bembridge One Design Scow is part of a generic group of West Wight sailing dingies which originate from the Ise of Wight. The design dates back to 1920 with many early examples still sailing today. The Scow design quickly spread to yacht clubs in various harbours on the Isle of Wight and the South Coast. The Lymington Scow and Avon Scow from Christchurch being developments from the original class.

Alan Coombes set up a boat yard in Bembridge in 1951 and was joined by Peter Scott in 1956. After the Second World War over two hundred Scows were built by the yard. In the 1980s a mould was taken from one of the original wooden boats and a GRP example was built. To date nearly 250 GRP Scows have been built showing they have a timeless appeal and reliability.

Built by AA Coombes in the early 1950s this example is of traditional lapstrake construction, mahogany planked and copper fastened having steam bent oak timbers.

Offering in 'ready to sail condition' with the benefit of a road trailer and fitted cover.
