On the Douarnenez -Agadir leg Transat Classique

Infanta has a cockpit shower and a large cockpit area so all the crew can enjoy a drink together – and there is plenty of deck space for visiting yachtsmen to wander around to marvel at your yacht while they drink your beer.

Infanta Cockpit

Below she is spacious, light and airy, well laid out for cruising in comfort. The interior is finished in Butter Nut timber giving a beautiful soft glow in the lamplight. She has the added comfort of a wood burning stove.

She has seven berths: A separate “paid hand” cabin in the forepeak, a separate large owners’ cabin with double bunk, and in the saloon a double bunk, a single settee berth and single pilot berth.

At the foot of the companionway, the galley is to port and the chart space to starboard with fridge and cold store beneath. There is hot and cold pressurised water. A step down into the saloon with a folding dining table, settees both sides ably seating everyone, with the wood burning stove against the fore bulk head.

Forward from the saloon is the separate heads, washbasin and shower.

Forward again is a separate spacious owners’ cabin with a double bunk, large seating area and nav. desk. There is plenty of locker space and a hanging cupboard.

In the forepeak is the “paid hands” cabin, separate from the other accommodation, with its own heads and accessed through the forehatch.


Infanta approaching

Infanta, a glorious, sleek and elegant classic yacht has a superb pedigree as an American Racing Yawl.
At 51ft length overall, she has a towering spruce mainmast, a balancing mizzen mast and is fantastic to sail. Reaching with the wind on the quarter under mizzen, mizzen staysail, mainsail, staysail and reaching genoa is an awesome sight and there is always some trimming to do. She is so great to sail and you don’t even have to go anywhere – it is just exhilarating charging about!

However, she is a great passage maker, fast and comfortable, and is an absolute pleasure to be aboard us she arrives in port. Her glossy navy blue hull with gold line makes her look bigger than her 51’, and her glistening masts, varnished teak cabin and glinting chrome make her a show stopper, whether racing in a Classic Regatta, arriving in a foreign port or anchored in pole position in a creek.

Infanta will be back in the Solent in mid 2009.

She is competing in the Transat Classique from Agadir to St Barth in November.

From January to March 2009 she will be based in the British Virgin Islands and available for charter with a skipper and 1 crew.

Infanta in the Virgin Islands

Infanta will be based in Tortolla, the perfect base for a week or fortnight's cruise of the neighbouring islands.
Like the Inner Hebrides without the rain and the midges, The British Virgin Islands must rank among the best cruising areas in the world. Each island has a mixture of secluded anchorages, often with a small restaurant or bar ashore, smart hotels and fabulous dive sites and beaches.

Charters for two guests are available between 17th January and 22nd March for either 7 or 14 days starting on a Saturday.

On arrival you can plan your itinerary with the skipper spending each day covering as little or as much ground as you like
