Well done, it is United Spirit and after a refit at Anytec, (former Marinteknik) she will now charter in the Baltic this summer. I´ll try to compile her complete history and post it later, pretty interesting as with most old yachts...

Maarten : In your post #27 photo one the logo I think is a Benetti . Could it be Desamis B a 39m from 1994

Happy to have some news of United Spirit. She had a permanent berth in Antibes during the last years, and she left the port Vauban after the last charter season (for Anytec, I suppose...).

About the sleek one :

Looks like a Westport but it's not.

Looks like a Crescent but it's not.

Honestly, it looks most of all like a typical US-designed production yacht in the 100 ft range. Not too many of those around our parts of the waterworld and the they resemble each other...

I prefer this kind of design :
Amels, tigre d'or series?

It's an 88' custom by LeClercq Marine. Here's the website... www.leclercqmarine.com

Here is the original design from the late 30ies.
Original she was named Edi II and built for the swedish general consul Torsten Kreuger. With 3 Wright V12 engines the 31,5 meter aluminium yacht had a top speed over 30knots!
Very impressing speed for a yacht in the 30ies.

Somewhat, perhaps, maybe, similar Yacht "Katherine". Maybe a design take on "United Spirit" ?.

Even today, that's still flying for a 100' boat!

In the late 50's, my parents bought an 85' ASR (Air-Sea-Rescue) hull from the Navy and proceeded to convert it to a private yacht. If I recall, the boat had triple V-12 Packards and was capable of 60 knots. Can't say for sure, I wasn't even a sparkle in my mother's eye yet. But I probably put her through less aggravation in my teenage years than that ASR did in 2 years. They removed the deckhouse, ripped out the Packards, installed twin gas motors and proceeded to build out the interior and a new superstructure. When I think of all that work, I'm glad I wasn't born yet!
