A beautifully presented yacht and piece of Scottish maritime history. Fully restored between 2015 and 2017, she offers integrity and beauty in a ‘simple to own’ package. Her up-keep and maintenance is more simple than a normal wooded yacht, please talk to us.
The Classic McGruer 41 international 8 m yachts were built and raced on the Clyde in the 1960’s – there was a fleet of these stunning boats, each with their individual ‘personality’.
‘Altricia’ will still deliver blistering pace with a very comfortable sea motion from her long keel configuration – a true ‘cruiser/racer’ Comfortable down below, she has a sympathetic fit out blending modern yacht systems with her classic pedigree. Above deck she has a modern, ‘easy to sail’ deck layout & sail plan with a complete new rig & sails.
Please talk to us for a copy of the high resolution pictures and more information.
