Comprehensively refitted and improved Doug Peterson designed centre cockpit bluewater cruising yacht. Launched in 1991 and refitted 2010-2012.
FURTHER BROKER’S COMMENTS:
With only three owners since new and the current owner of the past 20yrs, LETI has benefited from a comprehensive refit and upgrade package in 2010-2012 with further updates since.
Now configured for safe, fast and reliable bluewater sailing, LETI is a fantastic option for anyone looking to embark upon an ARC adventure, or simply to have a very well-constructed and sea-kindly cruising yacht to enjoy with family and friends.
LETI’s specification highlights are many and include:-
LETI is now offered for immediate sale with a complete inventory as her owner is planning to move across to a motor yacht.
I am the third owner of LETI. Was was originally ordered for a prominent Italian lawyer who dictated the custom interior design of the boat. In 1998 she was sold to a Swiss lady who used the boat very little before selling her to me in 2002.
From 2002 until 2009, I enjoyed regular use of the boat sailing Corsica, Sardinia, Sicily, the Adriatic, Greece, Turkey, logging some 2.500/3.000nm each season. LETI is a very efficient mile eater, with critical speed about 8.2kn motoring, even faster sailing in good conditions. Our average daily mileage when in “voyage” mode has been close to 200 miles/day. She points quite well into the wind, cutting the seas with a nice motion without slamming. She is a good timeless example of Doug Peterson designed racer-cruiser of her times, like many other designs from S&S and Frers.
In 2009, while moored in a harbour in Sicily, LETI suffered a leak from the engine water inlet which caused flooding to the bilges. This necessitated the replacement of her systems below floor level (engine, electrics etc), but seeing the opportunity to bring my beloved LETI fully up to date, I moved her back to her homeport close to Genoa and set about completing a comprehensive 3-year refit, finishing in 2012. My aim was to have an ‘ARC ready’ boat, able to sail in any oceans with complete reliability and in absolutely safety.
During LETI’s refit, the following was attended to:-
Following her relaunch in 2012, I have continued to enjoy cruising aboard LETI and have also continued a rolling program of update and refit which can be seen in the attached broker’s inventory.
Il Cantiere Serigi was founded in 1974 in Aquileia, along the course of the Natissa river, initially in a small factory. The first works consist exclusively of works of construction of hulls designed and printed at other shipyards, such as BENELLO, but which are immediately distinguished by the precision of the workings and the degree of finishing of the artifacts. Shortly thereafter, in 1977, thanks to the spirit of enterprise, the skills and vitality of the men engaged in the company, the first fiberglass boats were launched, built entirely by the shipyard, which thus assumes its own image on the market, already imposing the "SOLARIS" line. The SOLARIS 37 and SOLARIS 47 are therefore born.
Since its founding, Solaris has always had a specialized department for the repair and refit of custom and mass production yachts from boatyards all over world. Experience and tests at sea have demonstrated that most sailing yachts, suffer from the effects of the wind and the sea, resulting in movement and deformation.
