Gaff rig yawl

History

S/Y SKY was delivered in 1890 as a gaff-rigged yawl by British Thetis Ware. Built with a mahogany hull on oak frames and teak superstructure, Sky was build with the most classic and resistant materials to ensure she would stand the test of time. To maintain SKY in immaculate condition over the years, she underwent an extensive restoration in Spain carried out from 1997 to 1999. A further massive refit was carried out from 2008 to 2018 during which she received modern equipment and 27 of her oak frames were replaced.

SKY accommodates five guests in an owner’s suite and a guest cabin, both with bathroom facilities. Her elegant interiors were wholly refurbished in Honduras Mahagony and provide the optimum space for a luxury voyage. She is a timeless and absolutely unique sailing yacht that has welcomed prominent guests, including Brigitte Bardot, on board. But SKY is also a talented racing boat, that has competed in various regattas across the Mediterranean with a top speed of 14 knots.

She is equipped with new sails, a comprehensive set of navigation and communication equipment, solar panels and water maker, suitable for longer trips at sea, and is powered by a single 220hp Mercruiser diesel engine. SKY can this season be sailed in the along the Cote d*Azur and Corsica with an experienced crew around Captain Joakim Lindgren from Sweden.
