BROKER'S COMMENTS

KELPIE is a race and regatta winner designed by Alfred Mylne, and one of the most beautiful classic yachts of her size. At the end of the intense 2018 Mediterranean classic regatta season she notched up 1st overall in the gaff class at both Régates Royales - Trophée Panerai, Cannes and Les Voiles de Saint-Tropez, while still looking in start of season condition. This is only typical of the way this superb Golden Age of Yachting survivor has been cared for and campaigned under present ownership, including undergoing three major winter refit/ restorations 2009-2011 at Fairlie Restorations whilst continuing to sail by summer. KELPIE is ready to continue sailing, racing and thrilling. Her recent success has been achieved crewed mainly by family and friends crew - are you ready?!
