Built for an American in Hong Kong by Cheoy Lee in 1958, this boat displays an elegance that is unparalleled. After many years of restoring her to her original condition, she displays wooden spars, traditional wooden cabin, and a finish that glimmers in the clean waters of Newport. She is truly a work of art and is no doubt one of the most beautiful sailboats in the harbor.

    Couldn't have asked for a better trip. Patrick and Monika were very accomodating and easy-going. The boat was beautiful and just what my friends and I were looking for this Labor Day weekend. We even got to jump off and swim! If we're ever in Newport again, I already know where I'm spending my Saturday. Thanks again guys for a great time.

    The sail was absolutely amazing. Patrick and Monika could not have been nicer and the sail boat is beautiful. We had a group of four and there was plenty of room for us to lounge around and enjoy Narraganset bay. I can't wait to do it again!

Our Names are Patrick and Monika Abrecht, we moved from Switzerland to Newport RI to attend "IYRS" and to make our dream of sailing and restoring classic Yachts come true.

After many years of restoring her to her original condition, we would now like to share her with friends of classic yachts, Newport and the Ocean.
