Vancouver 274

Brief Details

Builder

Pheon Yachts, on mouldings by Northshore

The Vancouver 274 is an uncompromisingly cruising-orientated design, with no concessions to racing or modern fashion. The heavy-displacement long keel hull is very solidly built, and the hull form copes well with added weight for stores for long passages. These are sought after boats, and really good examples can command very high prices for such a small yacht

Vancouver 274

The Vancouver 274 is a development of the Canadian designer Robert Harris's original Vancouver 27 - first built as a one-off cruiser which was then sailed from British Columbia to New Zealand and back. Later a second boat was built, and moulds were taken from this for series production, both in Canada and England. The English Vancouvers were first built by Pheon Yachts, and later taken over by Northshore. The design was modified slightly to create the Vancouver 28, which is still in production, although at well over £90,000 for a new boat with the basic inventory she is one of the most expensive 28-footers on the market.

The differences between the 27, 274 and 28 are very minor. the 28 having a fractionally lengthened stern, and a few inches raising of the topsides. To date over 250 Vancouver 27s 274s and 28s have been built, and many have made long-distance passages, helped by the fact that the transom-hung rudder makes it easy to fit trim tab windvane steering.

Two different interior layouts have been produced, with three or four berths. In the three berth version there are no forecabin berths, but a quarter berth aft in the saloon. This yacht is the four-berth version, with a vee-double in the forecabin and two settee berths in the saloon.

The hull and deck are hand laid up GRP. The lead ballast is encapsulated entirely within the hull moulding. The deck moulding has a balsa core which is replaced with plywood in high stress areas where fittings are attached. The interior fit-out is to a very high standard of joinery, with lots of solid teak.
