Charming pocket Feadship - wonderful restoration project

Almare was built by the De Vries Shipyard in 1973 with a traditional steel welded hull and aluminum superstructure designed for extended costal water cruising. 

Almare has been kept as close to original as possible, with all original handbooks and build drawings still onboard. The acquisition of Almare presents an incredible opportunity to own and restore a classic pocket Feadship to her former glory.

Yacht Description

Upon boarding the yacht, the sheltered teak aft-deck offers a wonderful space for exterior dining. On both the port and starboard sides there are walkways, which lead up to the foredeck where there is further seating in front of the bridge windows. There is also access to a flybridge from the main aft deck. The flybridge offers full helm controls forward with comfortable seating. The elevated position allows for great visibility and perfect sun lounging area. 

Almare's main salon is extremely spacious and well lit, with a dining area to the forward port area. The interior of the yacht has been finished in teak cladding throughout which creates a warm & inviting atmosphere. The starboard aft area leads down to the full beam master stateroom and engine room.

The full beam master is currently set up to accommodate two single berths with a dresser between. With generous headroom, large wardrobe and good natural light, there is huge potential for a luxurious master stateroom. There is a well-proportioned ensuite with full size bath and shower facilities. Forward of the master cabin is the insulated engine room which is expansive for a yacht of this size. All machinery and equipment has been carefully serviced and present well for a yacht of this age.

The galley is located forward of the dining area with a service hatch conveniently located between the two areas. The galley offers service and preparation areas, along with an electrical oven / hob and refrigeration. 

Forward of the galley is the bridge and navigation area. The bridge offers large forward windows and doors leading out to the side decks. The current owner has preserved all original bridge and radio house equipment. The bridge leads below deck to the remaining 3 guest cabins.

The forward full beam guest cabin offers two single berths, book shelving and dressing table. In addition there is a private ensuite with a full size shower. The two mid-ship cabins share the third bathroom, which boasts a half size bath and shower. The starboard mid-ship cabin has a bunk bed arrangement and also houses the yacht’s laundry facilities. The port mid-ship cabin is more spacious with two single berths and adequate built-in storage

Almare has been fully surveyed in 2015 including ultrasonic testing on the hull. The current owner has since acted upon all points listed on the survey report. Almare has been kept as close to original as possible, with all original handbooks and build drawings still onboard. The acquisition of Almare presents an incredible opportunity to own and restore a classic pocket Feadship to her former glory. 



Almare has a 220-volt alternating current system for lighting and general services from one of the two generators, or the shore supply. There was a 24-volt system from a set of two x 12-volt batteries for limited services.

The electrical systems are controlled through a main control panel in the engine room which contained the generators control and protection, shore supply, and is fitted with thermal overload breakers for the high and low voltage circuits.
