Advertiser's comments

MABEL is a class act designed by Kim Holman and was built by Moody’s at the top of their game to Lloyds 100A1 classification. She can be sailed hard, will make fast passages, has a comfortable motion and is a joy to handle from the safe comfortable cockpit. With her modern sail handling equipment she can be sailed comfortably by 2 yet has the beauty of a fine classic yacht. 

A substantial refit 2005 - 2008 has left MABEL in impressive structural condition and only a few yachts of this size have enjoyed ownerships with such a focus also on the finer details – hence she is a very fine yacht of exceptional quality and beautifully maintained.

Typical of a Holman design MABEL is incredibly capable and combined with her ease of use for a classic yacht of this size in this condition makes for an exciting option.

Owners Comments

MABEL has a particularly beam, airy and spacious internal with all her new high quality joinery in excellent quality. The dog-house provides two excellent seagoing berths and an area to sit between cockpit and tavern – making it a very attractive feature. The magnificent cockpit is deep and spacious with the overhangs of the coach-roof providing shelter at the forward end, and the helm in the raised aft section giving excellent visibility. Under sail I have found Mabel to be a well-mannered, sea-kindly and very weatherly yacht. She is also, as her lines suggest, a powerful and stiff yacht, making fast passages, doing well in races, and well able to hold onto her canvas after other ships are needing to reef.
 

Refit Notes

Between 2005 and 2008 the yacht had a major refit at Baltic Wharf in Devon after returning from the USA
- New work and fittings in the details above are shown in italics in these details
- Not just cosmetic but a total structural refit addressing all the fundamental issues that can affect every yacht but which are seldom fully investigated and rectified. Structural wear due to mast compression stresses was fully rectified in 2006-8 with the fitting of additional floors, stronger frames and new garboard planks – this work was carried out to the specifications of naval architect Ed Burnett.
- New deck beautifully constructed by Dartmouth master ship builder Peter Nash who did all the structural work which as well as the work mentioned above, included re-splining and refastening and new engine beds with associated installation
- The engine and associated groups were renewed 2006 - 8
- The rigging, sails, winches and all fittings were renewed 2006 - 8
In 2010 MABEL won the Bouvet-Ladubay Trophy awarded by La Rochelle Maritime Museum for the best constructed and maintained yacht.

Historical Notes

MABEL is the third of three ships constructed to C.R. (Kim) Holman’s design number 65. Of these the second FIRE DANCER constructed in 1965 by A H Moody & Sons inspired one Captain Mc Manus to have them build an identical sister ship - and so MABEL AMELIA was commissioned. Both these ships were constructed to Lloyds 100A1.
Launched in 1966 MABEL AMELIA took part in the Round Britain race in 1967, coming last. This was probably due to a combination o
