    Question Where is Steinlager 2 now?



    Steinlager 2
    iskippered by Peter Blake, she won the 1989–90 Whitbread Round the World Race and line honours in the 1989 Fastnet Race. She was the only yacht to ever win all six legs of the Whitbread Round the World Race.

    Sold to Giorgio Falck and renamed Safilo. Was owned by the Blue Water Academy - more here.
    But wait, photographer Juerg Kaufmann writes: "Steinlager II is owned by a good friend. He is planning to bring her back to New Zealand. His name is Stefan Detjen living in Lugano. He is very supportive for almost any kind of activities with the boat. There is an important point to consider: the boat is back in his original shape all back to original. After he took here over by the Italians.
    Stefan Detjen of Big Red Challenge writes: "All correct with Jürg’s information. Blue Water don’t owe any of the boats listed (Steinlager, Amer Sport One). Steinlager 2 will do ARC 2010 and then heading to NZL. We just made a 3000 mile delivery in three weeks from Baltic Sea to Med (Trapani, Sicily) without problems or any damage. From August 1 –10 Steinlager will do a charter from Tunis to Istanbul (5 countries in 10 days). Still sailing strong..." 25/10/10: Currently taking part in Rolex Middle Sea Race. 30/8/11
    From Guy Mayger: Saw her in Napoli last week whilst we were on a cruise ship holiday tour of the Med (don't ask!)...seeing Big Red and being cheeky enough to ask whether we could take a look onboard. Delivery crew were very welcoming and my two sons thought it was great. From Mariano Capdevila (6/9/11): ...at this moment is taking part… and leading the Columbus Regatta, from Palos (Huelva) in the south of Spain to La Gomera Island (Canary Islands).
    The boat entries with the sponsor’s name: TOYOTA NIPONUBA.
    From Bruno Cardile (9/1/14) Steinlager 2 returned home to Auckland on 5 May 2012, where she has been bequeathed to the Peter Blake Foundation which has carried out a refit of the boat.

    Do they do 'charters' to the general public ?

    I had the pleasure of a "fast" trip across Foveaux Strait on her some years ago, She was in Bluff after crossing the Tasman sea and prior to that the youthful crew had competed in the Sydney to Hobart race - so you could say she gets about . . .

    If you, anyone I mean , have a look at the link you'll see they own Lion as well. She's in getting a major refit , must be out or coming out of that soon.
    Those big old maxi's have massive gear and similar loadings, if you look at the winches she had great grooves cut in them where they used to have wire sheets.
    The directors are also involved in the day charter Americas cup boats we see on the harbour mostly every day. Those you just buy a ticket and jump on at the viaduct.
