Hi All. Not found in a barn but floating in a marina. RNY Croft is based on a standard 40' Navel Pinnace hull, constructed in Burmese Teak. Commissioned in 1939 she is unusual in that she was built as a Royal Navy Yacht, rigged with a Gaff ketch auxiliary sailing rig. The elderly chap I bought her off is an ex wartime RN Commander and is adamant she served at Dunkirk. Her layout comprises small aft cabin with two berths, moving forward you step up into a lovely teak wheelhouse which was of the open loco' type which is still complete though panelled in with ply at present. Moving forward is a good sized day cabin with original furniture to port though corresponding furniture to starboard is missing. forward again is a small galley area to Port and heads to Starboard. Forward again is a proper engine room with long range fuel tanks added (During the war). Forward again is a small single berth cabin with steel deck beams (To support Hotchkiss Machine gun allegedly). Her hull appears solid and her Ford diesel runs beautifully but her carlins are rotten in places and there is some rot in her beam shelf. I've bought her to save her from the chainsaws but whilst I have the skills I have not the finances to restore her. Does anyone have any ideas where I might find people interested is saving her? She is at present lying afloat in the North East of England.
