An Admiral Cup winner, following major restoration, this vintage yacht is in better condition than at any time since launch
The 1963 14.86m sailing yacht OUTLAW, needs no introduction to classic boat lovers.
Originally built by Souters of Cowes and with naval architecture by Illingworth and Primrose, OUTLAW was considered ultra-lightweight at her time of launch.
OUTLAW led the British team to victory in the 1963 Admiral’s Cup under the ownership of her famous owner, Max Aitkin MP, a well-known figure in offshore racing.
In 1983 she was found in an abandoned state in East Cowes by her present Owner, who has spent 37 years restoring and maintaining her and she is now looking for a new Owner to continue this careful custodianship.
OUTLAW completed her first major refit in 1985 and in 1995 her whole rig was renewed.
More recently, in 2017, her hull was once again taken back to bare wood, with a Jotun epoxy paint system applied below the waterline and parts of the beam shelf repaired, and in 2019 woodwork was carried out forward to the stem and bulwarks.
OUTLAW can accommodate eight guests in one cabin and the salon. The Owner’s cabin has a double bunk to starboard, plus a single berth to port, while in the salon there are three deep-sea bunks up and two settee bunks to port and starboard respectively.
OUTLAW is a magnificent yacht and has been used primarily for regattas over the past 30 years, kept as original as possible in keeping with class guidelines. She won the overall Classic Prada Challenge in 2000 and the Panerai Trophy in 2005, as well as many other more recent victories.
With just a relatively small investment OUTLAW could be transformed into a fine cruising vessel.
