Any info on this boat, Duncan? I like it, but it seems a bit tender.

Hi Don:


Croix des Gardes was built in 1947 from teak hidden from the Germans during the war. She was built in Arcachon, France by Bonnin as a heavy cruising boat for the local Mayor. She was part restored by Canteri di Imperia in the 1980s and then had major refits in 2007, 2009 and 2011 for the Panerai Transat Classique from Lisbon to Barbados in 2012.

She might the kind of boat that sticks her shoulder down and keeps it there.

Yes, could very well be, Duncan. She certainly seems capable and has a slight Laurent Giles look to her. Very nice!
