- A recent circumnavigation of the Globe in a sistership of TYD#936, single-handed by a citizen of Turkey, proved the merit of going small; going now, as they say. Kayitsis, her name, was also built in Turkey.
The family boat from 1967- 1971. A great boat with an adventurous past. More about it can be seen at: www.ailleurs-autrement.com
My brother Dominique, age 19 bought the boat in rough shape. As can be seen on the video, she has had many re-built since. When was the last time that two people could easily handle a 72' sailboat with minimum gear and equipment?
Loved that boat!
Newport based schooner sails to Haiti, houses relief physicians.
The 160' private charter boat, based in St. Thomas in the winter, was chartered by a Seattle Foundation building Hospitals around Port of Prince.
The Arabella, can sleep up to 30 guests in her 20 cabins. Serving as a floating hotel for 20 physicians for the nine days mission.
Arabella, originally Centurion; designed by McLear and Harris, burnt and capsized in 1996 in Florida. A total loss, the 90' yacht was acquired by Don Glassie and Atlantic Stars and Hotels. Over a period of a few years, the boat was cut in half and a middle piece was inserted, to enlarge the vessel to her present size.
Tanton Yacht Design had a part in the resurrection. ref: TYD#966.
The annoncement of Tanton winning the Westlawn Institute and PassaMaker Magazine design competition is a good start. I was personally gratified, because of the reputation associated with the School and the Magazine itself. I was glad to receive the award in Ft. Lauderdale. The occasion was made in conjunction with the TrawlerFest in January.
