2016-10-27 - BGYB is delighted to inform you of a price reduction of € 100,000 EUR for the Swan 82 ALPINA!

The Swan 82 ALPINA is an updated model of the Maxi-cruiser concept. The vessel is a modern sailing yacht which has been built for speed, yet retains the company’s high standards and style: elegant lines, luxurious interiors, ease of handling and reliability. Her streamlined hull and practical deck layout mask a comfortable interior and a wealth of technology, which combine to offer outstanding long range cruising performance.

ALPINA's racing capability is also manifest in her design. Her centered mid cockpit and carbon fibre mast are but two aspects of a model which has consistently proven itself on the European racing stage, most famously when claiming overall 1st place in the inaugural season of the Swan Maxi Class, with an outstanding victory at the 2008 Swan Cup in Porto Cervo.

This year ALPINA was refitted with new teak decks, along with various technical upgrades, and finished 3rd in the IRC Maxi Class at the Rolex Maxi Yacht Cup in Porto Cervo in September 2016. She still shows great potential for keen racers, or sailors in search of performance and comfort!

SMOKE is one of the only Paine 62 yachts that has been built to an offshore certification, and is thus capable of performances and voyages beyond other boats of similar size and material. Purchased from Italy, her marine-grade alloy plates offer the strength of mild steel, and are very resistant to corrosion. Her last voyage was a single handed trip from Cape Town to Grenada, and having undergone further work in February 2016, she is now ready to undertake similar trips.

TRITIUM is a modified Orma 60 trimaran - stretched to 72 feet. Originally built by offshore veteran Jean Le Cam, the boat was updated by Artemis Racing for testing of AC wing and dagger foils. The boat was modified - with floats lengthened to 72 feet - and cross beams reinforced, for the new loads.

2016-10-13 - BGYB is delighted to announce the sale of the Futuna 70 sailing yacht ICHTUS!

OWNER’S COMMENTS : “ICHTUS is the boat that I dreamed of retiring to after 20 years of working in the French West Indies. She has been designed for a precise purpose; a shorthanded crewed travel around the world. We worked with Marc Lombard and the Futuna Yachts yard to design a quick and (very) beautiful sail boat that would be comfortable, easy to handle despite her length, and have fresh water and energy self-sufficiency. I also wanted a powerful engine and an aluminium hull for comfort and strength. She is perfectly fine-tuned, with up to date equipment, and is ready to go on sailing around the world."
