Built in Switzerland, this is a very pretty classic yacht. Past refits have included stripping the hull back to bare wood and re-varnishing, re-sheathing the deck, replacing the mast, new toe rail & sampson post, new engine and fuel tank, new interior, and new standing rigging. Since then she has had little use and has been ashore, so a certain amount of recommissioning is required including some varnishing on deck, but she is essentially very sound and will grace any gathering of classic yachts for years to come.
