Description

FIDELIO is a ubiquitous cruising and racing classic yacht, catching every eye in the waters of her New England home for the last 60 years. One of a new breed of Centerboard racing yachts built to the CCA rule in the 1950s, FIDELIO is a direct descendant of the legendary FINISTERRE – winner of 3 consecutive Newport-Bermuda Races. Unsurprisingly FIDELIO sports a strong personality of her own, winning classic regattas and distance races wherever she sets her eye. With loving care by her last two owners and work by Rockport Marine and Narragansett Shipwrights, FIDELIO is as sound as the day she was built and shows like a new  boat. Very well equipped and fairly priced, she is a great value for the "Classic enthusiast".
