55′ (16.8m) Classic Traditional Sailing Yacht
This beautiful classic yacht was designed by American naval architect William C. Frank of Offshore Yacht Design to be his own yacht and was built by Global Yachts (the Howdy Bailey yard) with high grade marine aluminum in Norfolk, Virginia. The designer wanted a strong, fast and comfortable yacht which would benefit from the reduced maintenance associated with modern materials, but one which retained a handsome traditional look; as a result, the build was completed not to a cost parameter but by using the best quality materials, fittings and equipment available to the highest standards. Massive frames and heavy hull plating built a very strong hull and deck; Teak decks are overlaid to the aluminum deck plating without mechanical fastenings; deckhouses, butterfly hatch and deck furniture are of the highest quality Honduras mahogany and still, look as good as the day they were made.
Below she is a breathtaking example of the Gentlemen’s days of yachting; mahogany, brass lamps, bar, library, curtains and atmosphere are found throughout. Everything about this yacht states “Quality” both inside and out. The fantastic paintwork on the hull, glistening varnish on the deck, sparkling Brass & Stainless steel fittings are worthy of a ‘Concours’ winner. In 2008, her 10th Birthday, she took second place in the ‘Concours d’Elegance’ at the Antigua Classic Regatta. In 2007 she was the featured yacht in the “Bermuda Tourist Brochure”.
