This classic yawl is Sparkman and Stephens design number 1254 from 1957, a design in a long row of famous off-shore racers, starting with ‘Finisterre’. The boat was ordered by a Swede working in Hong Kong and is the second boat built from the same design. The first is ‘White Caps’ still sailing in the USA. The builder had her over 20 years and raced extensively in Chinese and southern waters. Reverie then sailed to the UK in the early 90’s where she was bought by Bo Henriksson.
Reverie changed hands again in 2011 and is now owned by Dan Eliasson. She is moored on Nya Djurgardsvarvet in Stockholm. The yacht remains in very good condition.
