Yacht: Bona Fide

Submit Information on this Yacht

Her underbody design was way ahead of her time and she won her class, 5-10 Ton Class, in the Paris Olympics of 1900.

America’s Cup designer Doug Peterson found her after years of neglect and she went on to be restored by Cantiere Navale dell’Argentario in Italy in 2003, where they had to replace 98% of the Honduran mahogany planking and 95% of the ribs.

Her first regatta after her re-launch was at Argentario Sailing Week in 2003 with Olin Stephens at the helm, since when she has proved to be a very quick competitor on the Mediterranean racing circuit.
