Built in 1962 with drawings from 1931 she is a precursor in type to the classic Herreshoff design ‘Ticonderoga‘. She has been totally refitted by Charpentiers Reunis Méditerrannee at La Ciotat over the last three years 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, fuel and water tanks were installed this year 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 is empty with only plywood painted flooring, 6 LED lights and 1 toilet.
