Does anyone know about this Yacht

I think: it was built in the late 70's maybe 80's, was advertized by a broker in England in the 90's, sistership to Nadir II and Progression. Fan tail, 85+ feet, cat powered, stainless steel cap rails, slighty beamy, originally built for a Shell oil executive.

This is how i remember the yacht any info on the boat would be great. I tried to buy the other two at different times 10 years ago and I think this is the best of the three for me I would like to purchase this one. I never could forget her lines/profile

Hi,

Not sure about the exact vessel but it looks like one of those Bennettis that was made in a big long length and were chopped off and crimped at the ends when an Owner said what length he wanted.

Here is another one in this styling. But the only one in this size built with Catīs was Iruka II (later Ivara) from 1975, 25.98 m long. I have not found any pictures though, so she may look different...

A smaller one I found for sale here; http://www.boatshop24.com/web/en/wer...=1&lastshow=25

Those Bennettis of that era all had a similar look. We used to haul a 90' each year at Dad's yard in Antigua called Bamboo that had old Gardener engines but crossed the Atlantic like clockwork but she had a canoe stern.

The first M/Y I worked on was the 110' Gitana with a square stern, later named Halleluja that had a fishing bucket welded to the stern.

Not to confuse the issue but Codecasa also built boats to a very similar style.

Bambu was later called Progression and is a sister to the Alessandra Serena, both from 1973. Nadir Secondo / Nadir II from 1972 was just 25 m.

I see, the vessel I that I am looking for, I think was named, "Rose of Newport" but it has been a long time.

I agree and I really like that look The boat I am looking for was about 90 feet. The ones I mentioned Nadir and Progression all had canoe sterns.

Hi,

As the ad gives 2000 as the build year maybe that is the last of the pre built lengths turned into a yacht.

You have a great eye this is exactly what I am talking about.
I think the ship in the picture is Nadir II but maybe Progression they were both so similar.

I would really like to see a picture of Iruka/Ivara built at that time, 25.98 m long, and with cats seems to be the little ship i am looking for and can't get out of my mind!

The similar one you mentioned with the link is REALLY interesting it has my attention, but still partial to the extra 10 feet of boat that I am looking for.

Thanks for commenting ...... hummmm

Yes, I remember now. I was told progression was originally launched as Bamboo. I think you are on to something here does the picture of the boat I posted look like Alessandra Serena?

I worked on a yacht that was 97' and called "SISISI", it is still travelling the east coast of the US. It has Gardener diesels and I believe was built in a Feretti yard and is steel. It looks very similar to your picture and brings back fond memories.
