The first owner (for approx. 10yrs) initially used her for day charters on the Upper Thames (see period advertisement of same). The second owner purchased her through his company â€˜JFPR Ltdâ€™ and later he purchased her from his company. All this time she was lightly used on the upper reaches of the Thamesâ€¦hence the low engine hours.
I purchased Singapore Girl in Oct 2015 through my family investment company Calypso Investments Pte Ltd and had her trucked to Fairlie Quay where she underwent a very extensive (and photographed) refit over 18 mths. This included completely rewiring and re-plumbing the entire vessel, gutting and rebuilding the forward cabins, and installing all new equipment, fittings and furnishings.
At some time in the first ownership the hull was epoxied and later a coat of epoxy-tar was applied as well. There are no signs whatsoever of osmosis (which was an issue with some early Taiwan built hulls).
The topsides have been spray-painted with 2-pack. All teak was taken back to bare wood and re-varnished. The varnish is in generally good condition but one or two areas need freshening.

OWNERâ€™S COMMENTS :
Singapore Girl is very seaworthy thanks to her full displacement and long keel. The combination of her single engine and bow-thruster mean she is not only really economical but also easily managed single-handed. On a recent single-handed trip from Ardfern via Craighouse, Gigha, round the Mull to Campbeltown then up the Kilbrannan Sound to Tarbert (some of the trip in Force 5 on the beam) she used about 5 litres per hour at 1500rpm giving between 5-6kts, which I find to be her most comfortable cruising speed. She can be pushed to 8+kts if needs must but her theoretical hull speed is about 7.5 so that becomes very un-economical. However it shows that the engine has suficcient power to drive the boat at good speed into a head-wind and sea.
The high bulwarks and solid teak handrail make the walk-around decks really safe. Sheâ€™s surprisingly roomy given her actual overall length and the flybridge is huge.
I have re-fitted her to be really cosy and comfortable for 2-3 on passages and a couple more guests for day-time adventures.
Iâ€™ve always had sailing yachts but we got a big(ish) dog and decided we should get a steady motor yacht so we could easily take him with us. However Iâ€™d like to get back to a sailing yachtâ€¦. (and leave the dog ashore ! ).
