  • Boat descriptionShe was built in Holland in 1916 out of riveted steel and was converted into a luxury yacht in 1978 to a very high specification. The current owner has spared no expense in upgrading and maintaining her over the years and this has brought her into the immaculate condition we now keep her in. She is classed as a gaff rigged schooner with 2 masts and a total of 9 working sails. She is rigged in a very traditional manner that requires strength and hard work to get her moving as she weighs in at just over 180 tonnes. She's fully equipped with several redundant systems and has just come out of 2 refits in 2017 to prepare her for our circumnavigation.
