Severine

Severine, Antigua Classic Week, 2019

“A little over a year ago, the Chantier du Guip de Brest spent 12 months restoring a replica of a gaff schooner ‘Kinkajou’ inspired by Maine and Nova Scotia Cod Schooners. Séverine (formerly Petite Lande & Saint Salomon).
Built in 1993 by the Dutch yard De Vries according to plans made in 1927 by the American naval architect John Alden, she was bought by Gonzalo Botin in 2018.

This restoration took approximately 20,000 hours of work.

The hull is aluminum, which was also the case of the old bridge, rebuilt in wood but still covered with teak. The yacht has been completely renovated, the deck furniture with 12 layers of varnish, interior woodwork and cabins redone and adorned with sycamore panels. But in addition, the Séverine is equipped with the latest technologies including a CAN (Control Area Network) bus, a serial communication solution identical to that of modern automobiles. All electrical and electronic devices on board are connected to this cable that goes from the front to the back of the boat and allows them to communicate with each other. The installation was carried out by the shipyard itself and by their technical department. In fact, everything onboard Séverine is new, from the deck to the engine (Volvo).”
