This Herreshoff 58 ketch was built in 1962 by Astilleros Mallorca (Mallorca, Spain) with drawings from 1931. The yacht completed a circumnavigation and a half over several decades with its original owner and his family. She was totally refitted by Charpentiers Reunis Méditerrannee at La Ciotat over a period of three years from 2011 and re-launched in April 2014.
In 2013 the wood above the waterline, Oregon pine, and below the waterline, Iroko planking, was replaced as well as the oak wood for the frame steam and the Teak for the deck. The deck is totally new as well as the superstructure.
Two new SOLE 42 HP diesel engines, stainless steel fuel and water tanks were installed in 2014 followed by all new electronics, batteries and safety equipment. The chainplates and steel reinforcements were replaced by stainless steel.
Main mast and mizzen mast are original as are all the bronze winches.
The interior has been progressively outfitted since 2014. The salon, two pilot berths, chart table and galley furniture are in place and now need to be finished. The master stateroom forward (queen double to port and single bunk to starboard) and bathroom with large shower and sink are installed and finished. A marine toilet is installed in the head compartment and the aft stateroom furniture needs to be completed.
The main electrical switchboard and wiring were completed in 2017. All plumbing is operational and includes fresh water pump, hot water heater, hot/cold taps at galley sink, bathroom sink, bathroom shower and exterior deck shower. The yacht is equipped with grey and black water holding tanks.
The boat has successfully competed on the Mediterranean classic circuit over the last two seasons with good success. She is a very lively yacht and a certain head-turner at the dock with her elegant lines and cambered rigs.
The boat just completed a small refit and servicing in June 2021 for over 60K Euros: complete maintenance and respray of topsides, full engine and shaft maintenance, new Max Props, new bottom paint, topsides varnish. She is ready for the season.
