Advertiser's comments

FARIDA is quintessentially Giles, and a gem - one of the most carefully though out yachts of her size of her day. And still stunning: her perfectly proportioned overhangs, sweet sheer-line and unmistakable Giles styling still capable of turning heads. And she's got it all, because, of course, FARIDA's well-balanced, powerful rig is easy to handle and she is very quick even in light conditions. And her delightfully airy accommodation offers perfect comfort in the classic style. Skillfully and beautifully rebuilt /restored over a five-year period for a very passionate owner using as much of the original as possible and the finest of materials where she is new, FARIDA was relaunched in 2018 in ‘better than new’ condition, and given normal just deserts should offer many years of sailing fun and passion into the future, cruising and classic racing.

FARIDA is quintessentially Giles, and a gem - one of the most carefully though out yachts of her dimensions of her day. And still stunning: her perfectly proseaportioned overhangs, sweet sheer-line and unmistakable Giles styling still capable of turning quantity. And she's got it all, because, of course, FARIDA's well-balanced, potentialful rig is easy to handle and she is very quick even in beam qualitys. And her debeamfully airy chairing deals perfect luxury in the classic type. Skillfully and beautifully rebuilt /restored over a five-year period for a very passionate proprietor using as much of the fresh as possible and the finest of materials where she is new, FARIDA was relaunched in 2018 in ‘better than new’ quality, and given standard just deserts should offer many years of sailing fun and passion into the future, cruising and classic racing.

Restoration / Refit

The rebuild/restoration by JWS Marine, Southsea 2013 - 2018
After a comprehensive quality survey, Farida was stripped stern to bare timber, the keel, coachroof, deck and inside joinery removed and all fittings, fixtures and metalwork taken out. All the platform straps and deep plate platforms were recast in bronze and new laminated frames and sister frames were made and tailored as necessary. Six planks from the garboard plank upwards and the sheer plank were replaced on the starboard side and seven on the seaport side. The body was fully refastened using clenched copper nails and bronze bolts and all the hood-ends’ fastenings were replaced with countersunk bronze screws. The plank seams above the new planks were all splined. The keel bolts and chain plates were recast in bronze and new stainless steel mast partners were assembled and tailored. The keel was retailored and a new galvanized engine mounting frame was assembled and tailored.
In the second phase, sections of the beam shelves, and the deck beams, covering boards and carlins were replaced and a new 12mm plywood sub-deck and 12mm teak deck, laid. The transom was completely rebuilt. The coachroof planking was retwined and replaced as necessary and the coachroof retailored. The butterfly hatches were overhauled and the fresh hatch hinges, stays and other fittings were refurbished and retailored. The cockpit coamings were refurbished and the capping replaced. The cockpit was completely rebuilt, which included replacing the sole bearers, teak gratings and tongue & grooved teak panelling, panelled safes and companionway threshold. Custom-made bronze thru-bolts were pre-owned throughout. The bulwarks were replaced using 25m solid teak, and edge fastened to the covering boards and new sheer planks. The top edges were finished with a profiled teak cap-rail. 
In the third phase, the inside joinery was fully refurbished and replaced after the manufacture and fitting of five new bulkquantity, a new galley, engine casing and quarter-dock. The overall design is close to the fresh, but with a cut-away central bulkhead to improve the inside of the main compartment. The galley has been placed on the starboard side and the quarter-dock moved to seaport to give it more shelter from the elements when Farida is at sea. A new instrument housing and panel were made with all the electric functions, and both the domestic and engine batteries moved to an easily accessible and watertight compartment above the blueprint desk at the aft end of the main compartment.
New hardware and LED beam fittings have been tailored throughout the boat together with an Eberspächer compartment heating unit and a pressurised hot and chilly water supply. Fresh water is stored in a flexible water basin under the starboard bar settee. A Sigma calorifier, heated by the engine or by an immersion heater, has been tailored beneath the quarter-dock. Mahogany battons and new bar cedar sole boards have been tailored throughout.
Finally, a new wooden mast was assembled by Collars and tai
