Motor Sailing Boats For Sale – BURMA is no ordinary yacht: one for the connoisseur of the best in American design and construction; A magnificent illustration of the motorcycling heritage of William Hand and the legendary quality of construction and materials of the Henry B. Nevins yard. Key to its simple, bold and refined look is designer Richard O. Davis, who worked for 14 years as Hand’s concept artist before becoming Nevins’ designer. BURMA has been a long haul, a short cruise and a racing mother boat, most recently to US East Coast classics. Wherever it goes and whatever role it plays, BURMA catches the eye not only because it is a classic, but also because it is something special. And once on board, the BURMA lives up to the first impression.
William Hand’s instantly recognizable engine designs are said to have developed from his love of swordfishing, and such was Hand’s passion for swordfishing that he did all the design work in his absence (to be fair, even marketing his company’s creations). his assistant, Richard O. Davis. Undoubtedly one of the first NOR’Easter motorcycles – built for the Dupont family that still runs today – came out in 1926 a year after Davis was hired. When America entered World War II, Hand retired. and Davis moved from Fairhaven, Mass., to City Island, New York, hired by the Henry B. Nevins yard to work on the design of sweepers and air-sea lifeboats. After the war, Davis became the designer of Nevins and is best remembered for the three impressive, elliptical motorboats HOLIDAY (82 ft, 1947), SEER (66 ft, 1949) and BURMA (58 ft, 1950).

Combining William Hand’s development of the motor form with his mathematical experience developing hull displacement forms for the US Navy during the war, with these three yachts Davis invented what is now recognized as the pinnacle of the motor form: easy to drive, powerful and perfectly balanced hull form, the original American Motorsailer – which represents the last chapter in history

Established in 1949, BURMA was completed in 1950, the last of the three, built to Nevins Standard’s finest standards: the finest wood, custom bronze fittings and the finest craftsmanship. The owner of his commission was Frank S. Bissell, a member of the Larchmont and New York Yacht Clubs (where he became the 1st member), one of the true figures of American sailing and amateur sports after the war. He was a wrestling champion (who was inducted into the National Wrestling Hall of Fame before his death in 2012 at the age of 99) and coach.
This BURMA was Frank Bissell’s second, and in the early 1950s he had both at the same time. The first was the 1939 53-foot John G. Alden Yawl, formerly known as TIOGA TOO, in which Bissell won Class A in the first two editions of the Newport-Annapolis Race – 1947 and 1949 – against notable opposition including ARGYLL, BARUNA, BOLERO , CARIBBEE, DJINN, GESTURE, HIGHLAND LIGHT, NINA, NIRVANA, ROYONO, TICONDEROGA and VAMARIE.
Frank Bissell would own the BURMA motorcycle for 32 years until 1981. Then the second owner stayed with it for 24 years. Long periods of equal care are always good for a yacht, with the BURMA carefully cared for and perfectly maintained every winter. Coles Phinizy’s 1970 Sports Illustrated account of future “adventure broker” Buddy Bombard taking Bissell to ocean races is an example of living in BURMA at this time:
“In 1947, a year after working as a deck monkey in class boats, Bombard had the desire to “step up” and try ocean racing too. A 14-year-old boy to the sea, especially an untested child from a country Noticing that the best option would be a large boat, Bombard focused on Burma, a 53-foot yawl owned by Larchmont Yacht Club vice-commodore Frank Bissell. him several times in his office in New York and in Larchmont in follow him to his house.” I pressed Frank Bissell so hard,” said Bombard, “that he finally took me.”

“By intuition or luck, Bombard appointed a skipper who understood such youth… When Bissell’s Burma was in port, breakfast was never served until the deck was cleaned and all the brass was shining. “Once I came on deck. ” Bombard remembers, “and I saw Bissell chipping away at the brown, and I thought, ‘Oh, boy, now he’s found more brass to polish.’ “
During the 2nd decade of this century, BURMA operated as a classic regatta under previous ownership by William Fife International 8-Metre QUEST and Herreshoff New York 50 SPARTAN. There is no doubt that she is suitable for such duties, and the 32,000 miles of solo cruising by her original owner proves how useful and comfortable this great yacht can be.
Extensive sets of original drawings for BURMA have been preserved and are available at the M.I.T. Hart Maritime Collection in Cambridge, Mass., USA.
