FINN: 53′ Custom McConaghy Trimaraan
FINN’s owner, who is well experienced in high performance sailing presented designer Renaud Banuls with a very challenging brief. “A trimaran, designed for greater safety, permitting the thrill of sailing fast short handed, while offering comfortable appointments and accommodations in a fluid, cozy and ergonomic layout”. She is not to be missed!
FIDELIO: 38′ Sparkman & Stephens Yawl
FIDELIO, a Sparkman & Stephens yawl built by Matthiessen & Paulsen and launched in 1956. She recently arrived on the brokerage market fully restored by Rockport Marine and Narragansett Shipwrights and she is in exquisite condition. She is a member of a fine breed of Centerboard racing yachts built to the CCA rule in the 1950s, FIDELIO is a direct descendant of the legendary FINISTERRE – winner of 3 consecutive Newport-Bermuda Races. Unsurprisingly FIDELIO sports a strong personality of her own, winning classic regattas and distance races wherever she sets her eye. With loving care by her last two owners, FIDELIO is as sound as the day she was built and shows like a new boat.
HEYDAY: Nautor Swan 48
HEYDAY has just received upgrades to her running rigging, batteries and decks. Originally built for an experienced American owner, she was commissioned on the east coast of the US. HEYDAY has mostly cruised all of her life, but would make a great cruiser/racer for the family who wants to sail fast and in comfort. Typical Swan execution with proper layouts both above and below decks. With constant upgrades and only used seasonally, she is in sail away condition. Currently in donation, favorable lease terms are available.
