MISTRAL Yacht for sale

After all the loving care during the restoration and countless adventures at sea,

the owner would like to pass on this masterpiece into new hands for reasons of age. See more descriptions and information about the history of this classical yacht. MISTRAL – a typical design by L. Francis Herreshoff. MISTRAL combines elegant hull lines with excellent sailing characteristics. The schooner was totally refitted during 2 extensive restoration phases (the first from 1996 to 1999 and the second from 2006 to 2008), which were objectively and lovingly documented. MISTRAL is therefore not only visually but also technically in perfect condition. For any serious admirer of classical sailing yachts looking for an impeccable and ocean-going ship a visit to MISTRAL is highly recommended..

SY MISTRAL: Her history in excerpts“: In 1938 Theodor W. Little ordered MISTRAL to be constructed according to a design by L. Francis Herreshoff. As hull #73 and with a length of 63,6 ft she was the last Herreshoff schooner to be build in the shipyard of the Britt Brothers at the Saugus River in West Lynn, Massachusetts. In typical Herreshoff tradition MISTRAL was built as a big, nimble and fast schooner for the coastal waters of the American East Coast. During the war MISTRAL was used by the US Coast Guard: As a yacht she moved around noiselessly and was used to patrol for U-Boats. Years later she even wrote US naval history: She was the first training ship of the US Navy to sail across the Atlantic under the command of a female captain to participate in the coronation ceremony of Queen Elizabeth II. A description of the layout: From the cockpit and via the aft companionway you can go below deck of MISTRAL, where there is full standing headroom throughout the vessel. A classical place for navigation is located opposite the companionway. It is well equipped with a seat and a small desk for writing as well as high-tech navigational and safety devices. Behind this there are large drawers to store unfolded sea charts and an adjacent chart table. The canvass room with all the sails is located behind the detachable companionway. There is one large bunk on either side as well as a bath room with toilet, wash basin and integrated shower. There is an additional door inside the bathroom leading to the engine room. Moving forward there is a switchboard on starboard and a heated locker for storing oilskins before you reach the bright and charming salon of the schooner with its deck house skylights. The large table with a comfortable corner bench as well as a two seater is the centerpiece of the salon. There are many bookshelves and lockers to put and store things. On cold days a cozy Reflex oven provides warmth and atmosphere. The large, open pantry is located on the starboard side of the salon. Midships on the starboard side is the owners cabin with a double bed and exclusive access to an additional bathroom unit with toilet, wash basin and a shower cabin with glass doors. Midships but on the port side there is an additional bathroom unit with toilet, wash basin and integrated shower. On the way to the fore ship and on port there are 2 berths on top of each other. In the fore ship on the starboard side there are 2 additional berths on top of each other and on port some storage space as well as an (emergency) exit way to the deck. A lockable, watertight door in the collision bulkhead leads to the anchor locker, which not only provides room for the anchor chain (100 m by 12 mm) and towing line (100 m) but also for all fenders as well as other equipment. The entire schooner is flooded with light and provides a cozy and exclusive ambiance due to the high quality interior and excellent wood work. Dieter Krügel has to sell his MISTRAL for reasons of age: „After nearly 20 years of countless regattas and adventures at sea I am very reluctant to let her go. I know every last detail of this ship and invested a lot of time and love in this “relationship”. Whoever is looking for a lovingly restored and ocean-going classical yacht will find MISTRAL to be a reliable American Lady, who can weather any weather and will attract attention in every harbor of the world. I hope that the new owner will find delight in MISTRAL during many more adventures at sea. I am looking forward to hearing any serious offer.“
