classic with character

Cruising Ketch and Luxury Performance Sailing capable of accomplishing high speeds.

“I would describe her exterior design as “classic with character”. Although clipper ships were an effective inspiration for her styling details, the DNA of her hull shape comes from wooden ketch designs. The concept behind her superstructure is designed to serve contemporary cruising requirements."
