Loki

Loki was commissioned by Doctor Pinchot as an Olin Stephens design. She was built by the Albert Lemos yard in 1948. She is the first of the series. Pinchot and his wife, with a couple of friends in the early 50’s, decided to cross the Atlantic Ocean and arrived in the UK where they participated in the Fastnet Race and finished third. The incredible history was told in a book, Loki and Loon, written by Pinchot himself.

The boat was purchased in 2000 by a French owner and completely refitted in a US yard. There is a video of her put together following the restoration:

She participated in several regattas and now under Italian ownership she is based in NW Sardinia. In the restoration of 2000 the deck was not rebuilt. It was the actual owner who financed this operation in the new restoration of 2016. A wonderful blond teak deck, 20 mm thick, fastened directly to the beams as per the original S&S plans. A good number of beams have been changed too. The rig was completely changed and the whole planking refastened with new screws.
