Pilen is a 89 years old Swedish Skerry Cruiser. She came to France to the Golfe de Morbihan in 2009. Perfectly well kept hull, the boat has a completely reconditioned standard rigging and she has a new race main sail and spinnaker (designed by the renowned Alain Le Roux) in order for her to be able to participate in Challenge Atlantique Classique. Nevertheless her navigation program during the past years has mainly consisted of one-off day cruises. In 2016 some major renovation works were carried out on the hull. The electric circuit was reviewed and updated. The boat has had her yearly varnish. Pilen is a boat that has known a second youth since two years back, as she is looked after by the association ‘Les marguerites’ that also looks after another two classic boats. This ensures Pilen to be well kept and to keep on sailing ! For her owner it means 30% reduction on her mooring and a berth among other classic boats in Port Louis, a fantastic sailing playground, as well as the maintenance works (except for the supplies) carried out by volunteers, in particular the varnish – the boat remains available with a permanent skipper and a crew dedicated to the boat. The boats is thus well kept and cared for by the association leaving the possibility for the owner and his or her family and friends to enjoy the boat at all times, to participate in the summer and winter races ensured by the association as well as several nautical events throughout the year.

 

The owner's word

The Owner's word I went to Sweden in 2009 to choose Pilen myself and become the 4th owner in 82 years... I had the honour and the great pleasure to experience wonderful sailing sensations as soon as the wind gets above 8 knots. I still remember a race organised by the Trinité sur Mer Yacht Club where we caught up with the Pen Duick I upwind and left her well behind to win the race ! The rigging is new and leaves this nimble and powerful boat easy to handle, even in shallow water with her short keel. Pilen has always been wintered our of water in a boat house in a naval yard specialized in classical boats. Health problems stops me now from continuing to sail : I thus wish to give Pilen all her chances to reach 100 years in hands of someone passionate about classical yachting.
