She is an auxiliary sailing schooner delivered by Dutch sailing superyacht specialists Royal
Huisman in 2002. This much loved family yacht, still under her original ownership, has been
unstintingly maintained and continually upgraded by professionals.

The sweeping sheerline of her sleek aluminium hull and traditional deck design are by the
American yacht designer John G Alden, famed for his fast, sea-kindly and graceful designs, with
performance optimisation and naval architecture by Gerald Dijkstra.

British designer John Munford styled her classic interior with exquisite mahogany panelling to
evoke the golden age of gentleman's yachting. Her sail plan is easily managed by a shorthanded
crew but she can also pick up her skirts and fly at speeds into the high teens with a full crew in a
regatta. When becalmed her 1,057hp MTU diesel engine gives her a top speed of 12 knots at her
cruising speed of 10 knots.
Key Features

  • Built to the highest quality standard by Royal Huisman
  • Designed by Alden and Dijkstra
  • Cosy interior designed by John Munford complete with softly toned mood lighting and polished panels of fine-grained mahogany and Burmese teak
  • Pedigree sailing yacht engineered for a globetrotting lifestyle
  • New Nitronic rod rigging by Ocean Yacht Systems in 2019
