This Herreshoff 58 ketch was built in 1962 by Astilleros Mallorca (Mallorca, Spain) to original  Louis Francis Herreshoff drawings of 1931 of Tioga and Bounty to which Herreshoff took inspiration in 1937 to design and build  the worldwide famous Ticonderoga of 73’ ,one of the fastest and sea worthiest yacht of the Yachting History . Denebola completed a circumnavigation and a half over several decades with its original owner and his family. She was totally restored by Charpentiers Reunis Méditerrannee at La Ciotat over a period of three years from 2011 and re-launched in April 2014.

The 2011-2014 restoration :

The planking above the waterline, Oregon pine, and below the waterline, Iroko wood, was replaced as well as the oak wood for the frame  and the Teak for the deck. The deck is totally new as well as the superstructure.

Two new SOLE 42 HP diesel engines, stainless steel fuel and water tanks were installed in 2014 followed by all new electronics, batteries and safety equipment. The chainplates and steel reinforcements were replaced by stainless steel.

Main mast and mizzen mast are original as are all the bronze winches.

The planking above the waterline, Oregon pine, and below the waterline, Iroko wood, was totally replaced in 2013-2014 after a round the world circumnavigation, as well as the oak wood for the stem  and the Teak for the deck. The deck is totally new as well as the superstructure. The chainplates and steel reinforcements were replaced by stainless steel.The boat is actually totally new !  

The interior has been progressively outfitted since 2014. The salon, two pilot berths, chart table and galley furniture are in place and now need to be finished. The master stateroom forward (queen double to port and single bunk to starboard) and bathroom with large shower and sink are installed and finished. A marine toilet needs to be installed in the head compartment and the aft stateroom furniture needs to be outfitted.

Comment

The boat has successfully competed on the Mediterranean classic circuit over the last two seasons with good success. She is a very lively yacht and a certain head-turner at the dock with her elegant lines and cambered rigs.
