Designed and built by Thornycroft in 1947, Dubarry is a versatile live aboard with good head height.
Extensive repairs were made 10yrs ago, many planks were replaced, new transom fitted, most of the wheelhouse replaced and new iroko decks laid. Planks and decks were caulked with west system epoxy and sheathed with woven roving which has proved to be reliable in subsequent years. 12v fans have been fitted in the bilges and run 24/7 to keep them aired.
While most of the original features have been retained there have been some changes. The saloon is now aft and has been extended, a Morso Squirrel solid fuel stove has been fitted and the bathroom is now a wet room. The bedroom is forward and a wardrobe/office added.
Hot water is supplied by a Rinnai gas water heater and a new gas cooker recently fitted. The upper steering position has been removed and hydraulic sheering fitted.
