Papillon was designed as a Great Lakes racer by William H. Tripp, Jr., one of America’s foremost yacht designers of the era. Built by Russel Brothers in 1966, it was converted for cruising in the 1970s. The boat has had a fascinating history, including a visit from Pope John Paul II to bless the fleet on a Mediterranean visit and use in a Cover Girl mascara commercial. Papillon's classic lines were featured in Sailing World’s 2010 calendar, as well as  Classic Yacht Interiors (Jill Bobrow, WW Norton).   All lines run into the centre cockpit, allowing for easy sail handling underway. The cockpit is a large, protected area in which to work and relax. The interior of the boat is light and airy, featuring glossy white panels and polished mahogany trim. A uniquely open-style galley with stove, fridge, freezer and microwave to port and a double sink to starboard leads to the cosy salon. The long settee berths on either side of the dark wood folding dining table provide a spacious and comfortable area to entertain. The large alcoves above each settee can be adopted for a variety of purposes, from voluminous storage to additional berths. A private forward cabin features polished wood paneling and high carved shelving, while the spacious aft cabin sports two large berths and a second, private head. A specialised workshop area with tool benches sits opposite the navigation area.   Papillon's beautiful lines and classic design lend themselves to comfortable bluewater sailing. This is a special yacht to sail.

Just re painted topsides and decks plus all brightwork re varnished, the yacht is looking fabulous and has been re covered from stem to stern.
