Pavo was built 10th of July 1935 by Harland & Wolff Ltd on the river Thames at Woolwich Docks, London.
One of 24 pairs built of wrought iron with elm bottoms (known as composite hulls), PAVO was a star class boat named after the star PAVONIS which is positioned over Africa.
Originally a “Butty”, Pavo was pulled by a motor and carried cargo. Pavo was paired with the motorboat Pegasus; they both worked for the Grand Union Canal Carrying Company (G.U.C.C.Co) registered at Brentford No 503 carrying cargo from London to Birmingham amongst other destinations.
The present owner bought PAVO in 2004, the original 1935 hull was completely re-bottomed and re-footed with 10mm steel. Also at this time; five new channel glaze aluminium windows, a PRM 500 gearbox, a new prop shaft, tail shaft, stern tube, and a 25″x22″ propeller were all fitted.
All of the boats external fittings, (except for 3 x brass port holes) were produced are made of “gun metal” b all very expensive and unusual fittings.
The floor inside is ¾ inch reclaimed pitch pine timber, all varnished with lots of character, and is from a 17th-century textile mill. All main cabin work surfaces are reclaimed 1951 teak along with the front steps and bow cabin floor.
PAVO is 2 berth with a permanent fitted double bed in the stern of the boat with a 2 person 6ft bed settee with a futon in living area.
There is no gas on board.
PAVO was taken out of the water in April 2021 and 4 coats of bitumen and 4 x 12.5 kg anodes fitted, the boat safety certificate is valid until January 2025.
