  2. Classic Cruising yawl A. Robb design


    The collaboration between a clever Designer as Arthur Robb was and a great builder, as was the Yard founded by Herbert Woods in the Twenties in the Norfolk Broads, could only produce a great yacht and Rob Roy is for some historians one of the best boats designed by the New Zealander. When in 1966 a Florida based broker offered her in the second hand market for the first time, he claimed that she had costed 230.000 $ to buil, a statement of her hig quality craftmanship. And in her Robb placed many of his favourite features as the radiused windows of the dog-house, already shown on the two 10,5 Int. CR of his design built in 1954 by Gino D'Este in Venice (the Mila II and Paola). He will repeat the same feature also in the Mistress Quickly (today Nerissa, another 10,5 Int. CR) built ten years later by Beltrami, in Genoa. Other issues favored by Robb and found on board Rob Roy are the butterfly hatches that were rapidly becoming old style, but that give plenty of light and ventilation with only a small reduction in the strenght of the structure. Or the navigation room, placed at the companion-way on a elevated position to keep better communication with the crew and to reduce the slope with the interior, as there are two different levels. Or the folding chart table, the only allowance of the Designer in the search for ample spaces below decks. Or the gorgeous soles of massive wood and the then state-of-the-art laminated beams. In short, a real summary of ideas and woodwork of exceptional quality. The long over-hangs too, that give to the vessel her classic feel, were a favourite of Arthur Robb, a man that carried on drawing wooden boats even when the fibreglass was taking over. The lifting keel became popular in the Fifties with the victories of the Finisterre (launched in 1954, to a design of Olin Stephens). Robb had that in mind when designing this boat for an American racing sailor. In fact the Rob Roy had an effective racing career against the best racing boats of those days, that lasted well into the Eighties. Afterwards, she started a tranquil blue water cruising life that took her to the Baltic and North Seas and, now, to the Mediterranean. She is in very good shape and originality, something very important for a classic boat. You can contact us in Spanish, English, French or Italian.

  5. Beltrami classic sloop Classic cruiser-racer

    Barcelona, Spain

      The Nerissa was built to the A1 Malta Cross standard of the Lloyds Register: the top quality. She is fully built in teak using a batch that was drying since more than 80 years! Her hull, her deck and her impressive dog-house (very difficult to build) are all of teak. All her floors (acacia built as the frames) are doubled with monel floors. The monel raises the full frame at chainplates and involves the two bilge stringers. A first quality building made thanks to the high craftmanship of her builder, the Beltrami Yard. Ing. Vincenzo Beltrami built during 50 years the finest boats in Italy. His Yard closed at his death, two years after the launch of Nerissa. In her fifty years of life, Nerissa has enjoyed the ownership of four persons, the present one, since more than twenty years already. Her most famous owner was the second, Count Alberto Marone Cinzano. She is a very fast vessel, capable of points of 13 plus knots and averages of 7 plus. Her present owner used her mainly for family cruises and club racing with friends. No doubt that with a good grew and new sails she can make a surprise in the classic races in the Med. She is in very good shape and very original. She was never restores, just kept in good mood for each owner and the present one has preserved her as she was twenty years ago. He just replaced the engine and the rig. She needs a new sails suit and, perhaps a check to the electronics. You can write us in Spanish English, French or Italian.
