About our Boat

A yacht from the old times !

 

She  is designed by the famous American designer John G Alden in 1944 under the code name RENA CLASS 0744N.   Plans were buyed by the museum of Boston in 1975 from Nigel Halliwel .  The construction tooke place in Cape Town and get done in1984.   Her father choose this type of yacht because of the ideal water line for the ocean length of waves and because of the flexibility of sail area (two masts and baby stay).   So he believes that she was the right vessel to do transatlantic passages from Cape Town to United States and from there to United Kingdom.His record......60.000NM in five years !   She came to us in 2012 and she had a respectfull restoration to stay a jewel of the sea which takes us back to time.
