Philips 50 motor yacht designed and built for Sir George White Bt. by Philip and Sons Ltd of Dartmouth in 1963. Built to Lloyds 100A1 classification.
White Mouse II was the second of 6 boats built to this design, some differing slightly in their construction methods and deck layouts.
Purchased by the current owner in 2009, she was returned to her home port of Dartmouth where she has been based ever since. A series of significant refits have been undertaken, most recently by Silvers Marine in 2019/2020, along with more general and diligent annual maintenance by a team of skilled local tradespersons. This yacht has been exceptionally well cared for during the last 12 years and is now a shining example of British naval architecture and boat building from her period.
With 6 berths in 3 cabins, including 2 large doubles, plus 2 extra singles in the wheelhouse, she has a very spacious and comfortable interior. The current interior layout and joinery was fitted in the early 1990’s during a major refit by the previous owner and is a modern yet sympathetic upgrade from her original layout, much more suited to modern cruising and the way motor yachts are used today.
A very comfortable, elegant and sophisticated motor yacht in nice condition with a well documented history of maintenance and refit in recent years.
Condition surveys from 2017 and 2019 with full records of work done after those reports.
