"Santander of Wight" is a 42' classic Bermudian Sloop designed by the renowned Philip L. Rhodes. In 1957, the yacht's construction was commissioned by the famous Hollywood star Richard Greene (who played "Robin Hood" in the first TV series). In 1961 the yacht was purchased by Mrs. Mary Pera (née Blewitt) a famous English sailor and navigator who wrote the “Celestial Navigation for Yachtsmen” the definitive guide of its time to navigating by the stars. Mary Blewitt was a female pioneer in yacht racing who challenged the prejudices of her period and successfully established women's presence on many regattas henceforth.

R. & W. CLARK LTD., renowned  shipwrights at East Cowes in the island of Wight, were commissioned for the construction of the yacht. During the earlier years of her racing career, "Santander of Wight" participated in several yachting competitions namely the Fastnet Race in 1961 and, for many decades after, she also raced in Classic Yacht Regattas in France, Spain and Italy where the boat was based after Ms. Blewitt marriage to an Italian navy officer, Mr. Pera. 

"Santander of Wight" was purchased by her third owner in 1965 in Italy and, to this day, she has been the family's estate prime jewel, relentlessly and lovingly cared for.

A rare survivor of the classic yachting era, this Rhodes 42 features elegant lines and magnificent shipwright and joiner's craftsmanship. This yacht is in astonishingly good condition and has lost none of its prime beauty and sea-worthiness.

Don't miss this unique and exclusive opportunity to purchase a work of art !
