The owner built this yacht over a period of seven years with the help of a collection of dedicated and highly skilled crafts men, guided by Peter Ebbutt, a well known Naval Architect and Structural Engineer, who kept the project on the proper path. The result of that effort has exceeded his highest and very ambitious expectations.
Christine handles beautifully… in choppy waters, high wind and lazy breezes. The boat performs completely balanced with outstanding control. Should the wind gods fail to smile on her, the reliable turbo-charged Cummings power plant propels her to her destination.
The creation of Christine began in October of 1989…. When the owner looks back at the photos he took during the early building phases, he’s reminded of what a journey it was, from the first paper drawings, to her breath-taking launch seven years later, in October 1996.
One of his many fond memories is sailing Christine under spinnaker in the warm waters of Southern Mexico. As is often the case, the regatta organizers schedule races during a full moon. Christine moved almost silent, and he remembers gliding through the waves at 12 to 15 knots, with the reflection of the full moon glistening on the water. The owner watched a pod of dolphins swim aside the boat. They raced to catch the bow, to dash beneath it, leaving a phosphorous trail that lit the water around them. It was serene and beautiful and will be for you as well. Don’t pass this beauty up. Give us a call today!
