  1. 1953 New Zealand Classic Schooner Yacht

    October 19, 2012 by EVAN

    About this Sailboat:

    There are beautiful yachts around, but few have the charm and the potential of the classic schooner yacht Ceceline. She is only 40’ on deck, but she sports the lines of one of the large classic racing schooners that adorned the seas in the early twentieth century and made seamen dream of far away worlds. Further to her extraordinarily beautiful lines, she is unique in that she is one of the last boats built of kauri wood in New Zealand. This wood is said to stand for a strong and maintenance-free hull. Also her designer is the finest any owner can wish, Charles Nicholson. He drew her lines in 1931, although the boat was started to be built some years later, in 1946, and was finished in 1953. She was originally rigged as a racing cutter with a large sail area, then transformed into a more manageable schooner rig. If you want to own a handy classic sailing yacht, easy to maintain and distinctive and fast on a racecourse, Ceceline is the boat for you. Please have a look at her specs to find out more about this special yacht.

    Equipment on Board:

    This yacht is equipped with all essential items for cruising. Please enquire for full equipment list!
