- BOAT & YACHT FOR SALE BOAT & YACHT FOR CHARTER
From 2018-07-03 To 2018-07-09 - BGYB Charter - S/Y WHITEFIN - Last minute special offer on S/Y WHITEFIN!

S/Y WHITEFIN  was designed by Californian designer Bruce King and built in Camden, Maine, USA, in the Renaissance Yachts Marine shipyard. The result is a mix of agility, lightness and grace, so exquisitely proportioned that it makes you forget her 90-foot size and gives her one of her greatest qualities: speed. 

 

Her modern keel design and the extraordinary large sailing plan, allowed her to win, in recent years, the most prestigious trophies in the most important regattas for her category, the “Spirit of Tradition”, such as: the Maxi Yacht Rolex Cup in Porto Cervo, Sardinia; the Vele d’Epoca di Imperia, Trofeo Prada, Trofeo Panerai, in Imperia, Liguria, and Les Voiles de Saint Tropez. 

 

WHITEFIN was given a complete refitting in January 2015 by her new owner. The boat layout consists of four cabins. The owner’s suite at the stern includes a comfortable sofa with a desk on starboard and a nice vanity corner. On the fore starboard side there’s a comfortable bathroom with a wooden masterpiece bath tub; forward on starboard there’s the VIP guest cabin with a queen size bed and a spacious bathroom, while on port there are two en- suite guest cabins, each with two single beds.
