Sally

Sally a 10-meter was one of 14 nearly identical vessels commissioned by group of gentlemen form the New York Yacht Club. Built and launched in 1927 at Abking-Rasussen yard in northern Germany, she and her sister ships were brought by steamship to Nova Scotia where they were then sailed to the United States.

The significance of the “10-meter” demarcation pertains not to her 59’ length or her 80’ mast height but rather to an involved formula created to force the yachts designers to conform to certain design criteria. Only 3 of the original hulls remain. CF Koehler rescued Sally and got her sailing again after a year of plank replacements, new teak decks, interior woodwork and a new engine.

Comfortable layout

Sally is beautifully maintained varnished wooden yacht. There is ample room for sunbathing on deck or relaxing in the spacious cockpit. More experienced yachtsmen can option for a charter with racing crew and a full complement of racing sails and gear.

Amenities

Sally accommodates up to 6 guests with a captain and crew, who can enjoy unique appetizers and ice cold drinks. A variety of charter options are available including sunset sails to whale watching.

Finesse

Designed exclusively for world cruising by Sparkman and Stephens in 1958, Finesse exemplifies yachting of a bygone era. Although technically a motorsailer, her powerful ketch rig drives her along at a respectable clip in a gentle breeze. When the wind has gone, her sturdy and dependable diesel engine propels her quietly to your next destination. Finesse provides you with the romance of sailing, the dependability and safety of a motor yacht, and the self-sufficiency of a small ship, allowing you to cruise as far as your imagination can take you.

Comfortable layout

Unlike modern boats, Finesse provides you with a spacious layout, surrounded by the warmth of varnished wood and solid teak decks. There is ample room for sunbathing on deck or relaxing in the semi-enclosed pilot house where you can take a turn at the helm, or try your skills at navigation. The light and spacious raised main salon provides a comfortable place for relaxing and dining as you watch scenery go by through large roll down windows.

Amenities

Cruising aboard Finesse, you can enjoy many of the luxuries found at home, while at sea. Hot fresh water showers and air-conditioning and cold ice for your drinks, just to name a few. As the sunset signals the end of another fine day of cruising you can enjoy frozen cocktails and fresh appetizers while your gourmet meal is being prepared.
