Yacht: Yanira

Submit Information on this Yacht



Designed in 1952, built in 1953 and launched in 1954, she was named ‘Ingeborg’ in honor of the wife and the oldest daughter of Ragnar Appelgren, a Norwegian cosmetics Industrialist who commissioned her construction.

She remained in Northern Europe until 1957, when her owner decided to base her in Mallorca.

In 1963 she was acquired by Manuel Giró Minguella, founder of the legendary motorcycle brand Ossa. This Catalan entrepreneur, who loves ‘everything that was fast’, registered the sailboat under the Spanish flag and the name of ‘Yanira’.

Ten years later she was taken over by a syndicate formed by five friends, illustrious names in Spanish genealogy linked to the Real Club Nautico de Barcelona. They were Luis de Olano Barandiaran, Ignacio de Olano Fontcuberta, Luis Gil de Biedma Alba, Felipe Camps Subirats and Perico Genové.

In 1983, the superfast cruiser-racer was left to the families of Luis Gil de Biedma and Federico García Planas, who remained the only owner in 1995.

Since 2013, the yacht belongs to Magdalena Mora González and Andrés de León Ramón-Borja, the developers of Regatta Experience project, a new team to continue writing the story of Yanira on race courses.
