Barcos Singulares Comments

George Desty, the son of a shipwright, started working around the beginning of the XX Century in different Yards of the South Coast in England, among them Thornycroft. In his spare time he used to build smal dinghies at home. With them he reached so much success that he was prompt to start his own business. Thus Rampart Boatbuilding Works was created in 1919. Ten years later, Rampart introduced its first motor yacht the Rampart 30 whose design from Thornicroft himself was to mark the style for all the Yard's future production: a high bow with flush deck forward, ending up to a glazed deck-house followed by a lower hull aft. These were the lines of the gentlemen's motor boats of the period, based on an American style so succesful in the first half of the XX Century. George Desty built many models, designed following the desires of each customer, increasing or reducing dimensions, always keeping the original style. The range increased to a 39, then a 40 and lately a 48, whith even a 50 never so named. George died in 1946 and his son Horace took over the direction of the Yard. During the Sixties the third generation of the family was introduced to the works. Rampart built boats, always in wood and with the same lines until mid Eighties and a 48 was precisely the last Rampart to be built. Then the Yard switched to maintenance and restoration works. Sea Dawn, this Rampart 48 being offered, is to be found well kept in magnific original shape. Her present owner, a shipwright himself, was the owner of a restoration Yard in England. Sea Dawn is his second Rampart 48 to be restored and the closer to original specifications. Everywhere on board the classic old feeling (already classic even when the boat was new) has been preserved intact. All the structure is sane and in perfect shape. The engines have been serviced with original parts. This boat sails very comfortably, being stabilised by a short sail devoted to this. She is a real spectacle while sailing!
