Introductory Comments
Amie de la Mer is one of the newest and best maintained performance cruising Bristol 47 center cockpits to reach
the brokerage market. She qualifies as one of the finest examples of this very popular Ted Hood design with classic
lines and beautiful cherry interior woodwork. her rugged, solid fiberglass construction, modern shoal draft keel with
centerboard and spacious accommodation make her one of the most coveted high quality semi custom designs. No
expense was spared when she was built and the current and past owners have continually upgraded her equipment
and machinery. Hinckley Yacht Services of Savannah, GA primarily performs all service and installation of upgrades
and new equipment up until 2007 when she was purchased by her current owner and who enlisted a professional
yacht manager to over see all maintenance in conjunction with Front Street Shipyard.
"Quality construction begins witha hull of hand laminated solid fiberglass, reinforced in high stress areas. Vinylester
resin is used in the outer most laminates. The deck, also of hand-laminated fiberglass, features a 1/2 inch balsa core
for stiffening and a molded nonskid deck surface. In built-to-last Bristol fashion, the deck is fitted to a recessed flange
on the hull and through bolted on 6″ centers. To complete the hull-to-deck bond, a teak toe rail is though bolted at
alternating intervals. Each interior bulhead is joined to the hull and deck with fiberglass, while the cabin sole is
constructed of individual pieces of solid teak and ash splines that are screwed and then glued toa sub-floor. All
plumbing both hot and cold is piped through copper tubing with flare fittings. The hydro dynamically shaped
centerboard is constructed of solid fiberglass with steel reinforcing rods added for strength. Bronze seacocks are used
on all thru hulls and are grounded. Special features include custom stainless steel water tanks connected byt selection
manifolds as well as state of the art electrical and mechanical systems easily accessed for maintenance. All chain
plates are stainless steel and are through bolted to fiberglass knees, which are bonded to the hull. Each chain plate is
accessible for routine inspection." Bristol 47.7 Brochure
