Javelin is a pretty stunning 30′ Concordia Yawl, but aren’t they all? Amazingly, until purchased in 2010, she has been with the same family since purchased new in 1958. She has just undergone a full restoration by Concordia and is in ready to sail shape.
The work entailed replacing the horn timber and 24 planks aft, sheer planks and transom. The covering boards and toe rails were replaced around the entire boat and all of the brightwork was done – revealing the original deep mahogony.
The deck has new awlgrip with non-skid and the Yanmar was fully rebuilt. The wiring was completely replaced with new battery and panel.
The galley was completely gone through, with new substructure and surfaces. The rudder was replaced, spars restored and furler replaced as well.
Llewellyn Howland established Concordia Company, Inc. in 1926. He named the company after a famous Howland family whaling vessel. He wanted a daysailer that could race and cruise in the choppy seas and heavy afternoon breezes of Buzzards Bay. What started as design number fourteen, just another Concordia boat, became the classic Concordia yawl, one of the most successful and long-lived stock racer/cruisers ever built. When the name Concordia is mentioned, it is the yawl, with her distinctive star and moon covestripe, that comes to mind. Concordia Company commissioned 103 Concordia yawls between 1938 and 1966. The German shipyard, Abeking and Rasmussen, constructed all but four of the yawls. Oyster Bay yachtsman Drayton Cochran commissioned the first Abeking and Rasmussen-built Concordia yawl, beginning the unique relationship that would develop between the two companies.The History of Concordia Yachs – concordiaboats.com
