Description: For sale by owner, the 'Diamond Head' is a stunning piece of yachting history. She is a beautiful historical Yacht from the era of early Millionaire yacht owners of the past. A true classic beauty with a nostalgic sense from a rich glamorous and classy era of elegance. She has just completed a 4,000 mile trip from Seattle, Washington to Cartagena, Colombia, with further plans to continue toward charter opportunities in the west Indies; which underscores her strength and reliability. She could also be delivered should that be of interest.

Diamond Head was built in 1938 at the Fellows & Stewart yard in Wilmington, California to a design by George Craig. Fellows & Stewart was well known for building high quality yachts and only the best components were used. The yard reportedly spent years acquiring a cache of long boards for her hull planking which is double planked Philippine mahogany. Frames are 3 by 3 bent oak on 15 centers. She is fastened with bronze screws. Her deck is teak over pine planking on 2.5 by 3.5 deck beams on 13 centers. Her keel is cast lead fastened with bronze bolts.DIAMOND HEADS hull design is a classic full keel racing configuration with long graceful overhangs.

She has a colorful history as a Transpac racer, maybe most notorious for a man overboard incident in the 1951 Transpac when Ted Sierks, a 40 year old Life Magazine photographer who was aboard to document the race, fell overboard 800 miles from Hawaii. After LAPACHE (previous name of the Diamond Head) and several other boats searched for him in vain, some Navy vessels joined in and miraculously found him alive after almost 30 hours in the water
