Bernard Gallay sells performance sailing yacht Alye Parusa
by Malcolm MacLean
Built by France’s MAG yard with naval architecture by Alexander Simonis, she was launched in 2000 and refitted in 2004, with a new keel in 2008. She is the only Maxi open for solo or short-handed record attempts on the open sea. This superyacht sleeps up to nine guests and was sailed solo around the world by Russian skipper Fedor Konyukhov. French newspaper Le Figaro once chartered her for a voyage around Africa. She is fitted with a carbon mast and boom and all controls are handled from her centre cockpit.
Alye Parusa was asking €300,000.
