Launched in 1989, Pegasus was commissioned by a client wanting a classic racing boat built with modern techniques. With this in mind, Cesare Sangermani designed an innovative semi-flush deck, comprehensive deck equipment for a racing crew of 15 and a 27 metre Cariboni aluminium mast. With a dedicated helm area she has two separate cockpits. The first is for the skipper and main, the forward larger space has a grinder for the fore sails. Among other modern features, she has a wing keel which reduced the draught to 2.7 m but affords an amazing speed sailing between 110 – 250 degrees.
PEGASUS started life for her first owner participating in Mediterranean regattas – with quite sparse stripped down accommodation – and delivering great performances. Her second owner changed her name to SANTA MARIA and used her mainly for cruising, having crossed the Atlantic then spending a couple of seasons in the Caribbean.
The current owners bought her in 2003 and in short order gave her a significant functional refit. Reverting also to her original name PEGASUS, the main task was to convert her simple interior into the elegant boat she deserved to be. At Sangermani an architect designer was engaged to rethink the interior and create spacious areas.
