The Gitana IV has been sold to a buyer with the introduction done by Barney Sandeman representing the Sandeman Yacht Company. This classic sailing yacht of 27.58 meters was listed for sale by Horsley at the Edmiston and Company. The Gitana IV was structured by the well-known yard from Italy, Sangermani, famous for its in-house design of yachts. It was built entirely of planks made of mahogany on Iroko frames.
It was delivered for the first time like a classic yawl in the year 1962. This yacht is renowned because she was commissioned by Baron Edmond de Rothschild. She also won various regattas which include the Fastnet Race. She made a record at that race that was unbroken for more than 19 years.
She is one of the most comfortable yachts, in spite of her pedigree for races. It has three cabins that can accommodate six guests. The cabins consist of two suites for VIPs and a master suite. All of the cabins have twin beds and shower facilities inside. The dining table that is there at the yacht’s main saloon deck, six guests can sit comfortably on three sides of it in a half-circle. The couches are all covered with designer cloth. The table offers various storage spaces, an ice maker, a center for entertainment, and bookshelves.
The most important mast of the yacht was replaced in the year 2010 and the mizzen and the boom mast were painted and overhauled again at that time. All the supporting rods and their associated screws were changed in addition to the masts at the same time. The top speed that she has is 10.5 knots and offers a maximum cruise range of 600 nautical miles at 9.5 knots. Her power comes from a Lugger 340hp 6125A engine that is run on diesel.
