1990 Colvin Gazelle 42

  • Description

Seller's Description

The steel hulled junk rigged schooner the Gazelle 42 was American boat designer Thomas Colvins most successful vessel, great for coastal cruising or offshore passages.

This Gazelle 42 is a very safe and simple vessel, offered for sale in excellent condition by the original owner. The boat was built professionally by Horizon Yachts in BC in 1990 using 10 gauge steel, with steel in the keel sections. The original plywood roof was removed, and rebuilt in steel to increase the safety & longevity of the vessel. At the same time, extra ballast and 4 was added to the keel on recommendation from the designer. The hull was recently repainted above and below the waterline, is rust free and ready to go.

The junk rig is a safe, secure and very easy to sail. With full sail up, this unique vessel is very pretty and will turn heads. The extendable bowsprit reduces the LOA and your marina fees, while providing plenty of power out on the water. Wide side decks make moving fore and aft easy, and the solid lifelines and the center helm make this is an extremely safe vessel. Plus with sleeping accommodations for up to 7, there is room for the whole family. But perhaps best of all, this boat was repowered in 2018 with a brand new 28 hp Volvo Penta diesel engine with only 42 hours!!!

Rig and Sails

Auxilary power, accomodations, calculations.

The theoretical maximum speed that a displacement hull can move efficiently through the water is determined by it's waterline length and displacement. It may be unable to reach this speed if the boat is underpowered or heavily loaded, though it may exceed this speed given enough power. Read more.

Classic hull speed formula:

Hull Speed = 1.34 x √LWL

Max Speed/Length ratio = 8.26 ÷ Displacement/Length ratio .311 Hull Speed = Max Speed/Length ratio x √LWL

Sail Area / Displacement Ratio

A measure of the power of the sails relative to the weight of the boat. The higher the number, the higher the performance, but the harder the boat will be to handle. This ratio is a "non-dimensional" value that facilitates comparisons between boats of different types and sizes. Read more.

SA/D = SA ÷ (D ÷ 64) 2/3

  • SA : Sail area in square feet, derived by adding the mainsail area to 100% of the foretriangle area (the lateral area above the deck between the mast and the forestay).
  • D : Displacement in pounds.

Ballast / Displacement Ratio

A measure of the stability of a boat's hull that suggests how well a monohull will stand up to its sails. The ballast displacement ratio indicates how much of the weight of a boat is placed for maximum stability against capsizing and is an indicator of stiffness and resistance to capsize.

Ballast / Displacement * 100

Displacement / Length Ratio

A measure of the weight of the boat relative to it's length at the waterline. The higher a boat’s D/L ratio, the more easily it will carry a load and the more comfortable its motion will be. The lower a boat's ratio is, the less power it takes to drive the boat to its nominal hull speed or beyond. Read more.

D/L = (D ÷ 2240) ÷ (0.01 x LWL)³

  • D: Displacement of the boat in pounds.
  • LWL: Waterline length in feet

Comfort Ratio

This ratio assess how quickly and abruptly a boat’s hull reacts to waves in a significant seaway, these being the elements of a boat’s motion most likely to cause seasickness. Read more.

Comfort ratio = D ÷ (.65 x (.7 LWL + .3 LOA) x Beam 1.33 )

  • D: Displacement of the boat in pounds
  • LOA: Length overall in feet
  • Beam: Width of boat at the widest point in feet

Capsize Screening Formula

This formula attempts to indicate whether a given boat might be too wide and light to readily right itself after being overturned in extreme conditions. Read more.

CSV = Beam ÷ ³√(D / 64)

Similar to the CLASSIC 22, GRAMPIAN 22, BLUEJACKET 23(PACESHIP), and VIKING 22.

Broker's Comments

This boat certainly has the wow factor. She has had a professional paint job and looks a million dollars. The project has not been completed as the owner had decided to change her sloop rig to a junk rig, which is yet to be commissioned and she has new sails ready to go. The interior will need refitting throughout although there is a new fridge and washing machine still in the boxes, waiting to be installed. Unfortunately the owner has passed away so this wonderful boat needs a new owner to complete the project. The sloop rig mast is still available if one would prefer to change her back to her original rig. For blue water cruising or a liveaboard this boat is well worth considering at a fraction of the price and the choice of fitting her out is down to you. This vessel has had in excess of £200,000 spent on her to date and therefore offers a grand opportunity for any potential purchaser, however it is going to take at least a further £50,000 to re-commission the boat to a reasonable standard.

These boat details are subject to contract. Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.

Hi Keith, I'm interested in the boat but unsure of its availability, as it's been under offer for almost a month. Could you confirm if it's still available for viewing or has been sold? Thanks for your prompt response. Kind regards, Walter

Hi, Can you please provide details on the water, fuel and battery capacities? Kind regards, Mike
