Hull no. 050 was a
California boat until the early 1990's when it was purchased by
a gentleman from Hot Springs, Arkansas. Following some minor
bottom work, hull no. 050 spent several years on Lake Hamilton
in a slip next to Silver Arrow 012. In 2004 Silver Arrow
050 was sold to a gentlemen from Miami, Florida who used the boat
regularly for several years until deciding to begin a
restoration on the boat.
The restoration of Silver
Arrow 050 began in 2009 as the Miami owner had the hull sides and decks prepped
for new paint, the engine rebuilt and all upholstered pieces
reupholstered before deciding to offer the boat
Silver Arrow 050 was
purchased and transported to Pittsburgh in March 2011 where a survey of the
hull and parts was completed. After removing all debris
from the boat it was placed in storage until early 2012 when YNOT Yachts
resumed the restoration.
As of January 2014,
050 is waiting for the decks to be primed and faired.
Once the fairing is complete, the decks and topsides
will be painted and re-assembly can begin.
Silver Arrow will be
restored to concours standards and is expected to be launched
late fall 2014.
Please check back,
photos will be updated as
the restoration progresses.
