1963 International 500 Yawl Yawl Sailboat in Rockland, Maine

Stock #195987

This classic International 500 Yawl was built in Bremen, Germany by Dutch builder Johann Dedood and Sohns. A quick glance at the interior photos will make your heart beat faster....what a fine display of magnificent Dutch woodworking and craftmanship!

Constructed of mahogany planking over white oak frames, keel and deck beams, she has stood the test of time and nowadays, she is the star in every harbor she enters and is always appreciated at the classic boat regattas.

These boats were highly regarded back in the day for their sailing performance and as being sea kindly and safe sailboats. She is large enough for a couple or small family to cruise in comfortably, yet small enough to be a fun day sailor or weekender.

She has been lovingly maintained and progressively restored over her many years. She is currently on the hard, but once launched, she is reported to be in sail away condition.

A vessel walkthrough from bow to stern follow:

The anchor rode locker is in the forepeak and carries 220' 5/8" 3 strands, 20' 5/16" galvanized chain, 35 lb CQR anchor stowed on bow roller),

The V-berth follows with water tanks and storage drawers beneath. On the port side is a small hanging locker. The starboard side is the enclosed head with a dual-purpose door that also serves to isolate the forepeak for privacy.

Portside amidships is a single settee/berth with storage shelving outboard and above followed by the galley with one burner alcohol stove, ample storage lockers, and an insulated icebox. The folding swim ladder is usually stowed in the well of the port berth.

The starboard side is a combo hanging locker with a built-in base cabinet with countertop and 3 drawers followed by a single settee/berth. The 12-volt breaker panel and anchor windlass switch are mounted above the countertop. The starboard berth has storage shelves outboard and a hinged access door to the cockpit locker. Both saloon berths have stOwning

Structurally this beauty has been gone over from stem to stern.in the second half of her journey. Plank fasteners are bronze screws, keel bolts are bronze and the ballast keel is cast iron. The laid teak deck over marine plywood subdeck (blind fastened- no bungs!) and mahogany house with painted epoxy/canvas roof were both new circa 2002.

The 18 HP freshwater cooled Westerbeke diesel installed new circa 1992 has only 1400 hours, has been well maintained and runs impeccably! The wheel steering is pedestal mounted with a 5" White Constellation compass binnacle. The compass was professionally rebuilt in 2016.

Prior hull repairs/ improvements (circa the early 1990s) include new keel timber, stem, sternpost, some below waterline planks and deadwood (yard records of repairs by Brooklin Boat Yard available) and some topside planks were replaced earlier. (I have analog photos of the boat from when it was bright finished, probably circa the 1980s)

We're told all sails are in good condition, still fairly crisp, age unknown. 140% Genoa on roller furler, main with one slab reef point & mizzen by Shore Sails, assym cruising spinnaker with dousing sock and matching mizzen staysail.

Sitka spruce main and mizzen masts, booms and spinnaker pole are bright finished and in beautiful condition.

Systems include Lewmar electric anchor windlass, basic electronics including VHF radio, Autohelm ST3000 wheel self-steering, Garmin GPS, Signet knot meter and depth sounder and 3- 12vdc power points in the saloon. Starting and house (deep cycle) batteries with Guest 3 way switch are in the starboard cockpit locker. 30 gallons of water storage in 2 soldered copper tanks with electric pump supplied galley faucet. Approximately 10-gallon poly fuel tank. One burner alcohol stove and insulated, built-in icebox.

There are 3 bilge pumps. The automatic Rule (800 GPH) float switch actuated pump was new in 2016 and handles day to day seepage easily. The Jabsco Water Puppy (6.3 GPM) is switched at the DC Panel, draws from the deepest part of the bilge and got a new impellor and O-ring in 2019 and works as a good backup.

The 3" bronze Navy hand pump mounted in the starboard cockpit locker moves more water than the other two combined and is the steadfast backup for emergency situations and just received new leathers in 2016.

The enclosed head was renovated in 2015 with new paint, varnished ceiling and mahogany towel racks and features a recently rebuilt hand-pumped Groco marine toilet with 5-gallon poly holding tank. The head sink has no faucet fixture but plumbing is in place if you can find a classic one.

She differs from other I-500s in that she had a new, lower and more attractive mahogany deck house installed, along with new teak decks and other upgrades, about 2002 and, yes...ahem... she is rather pretty!
