ALGUE was designed in 1948 by a young Swedish yacht designer Olle Enderlein. She was built at the renowned shipyard Le Marchand in St Malo for a French doctor who desired a solid, all round yacht that could perform in various conditions.

She is a 42 foot ( 12.80m ) Bermudian Cutter and has been based in Mediterranean waters for most of her life.

During the winter of 2017/18 Algue underwent a restoration project under new owner Alex Tilleray (past Captain to the S&S Manitou). She then participated in her first regatta at Les Voiles d’Antibes in June, 2018.

You can find Algue for charter at  and more at the Instagram and Facebook page under S/Y Algue.
