Classic sailing superyacht Fleurtje for sale back on the market with Fraser Yachts
by Malcolm MacLean
Fleurtje was designed by Robert Clark and built at the renowned Dutch shipyard of http://www.boatinternational.com/profiles/de-vries-lentsch--21517 with delivery in 1960. Previously know as Carita and then Argonaftis, she had a full refit in 2005.
At 57 metres, Fleurtje has extremely elegant lines. The long overhangs at bow and stern, the rich Awlgrip blue hull and three Douglas fir masts with staysail plan combine into a handsome profile.
Her steel hull and aluminium superstructure are in splendid condition having been faired and repainted during her refit. The acclaimed naval architect Gerald Dijkstra was brought in to optimise sailing performance, thus resulting in considerable speed and handling improvements.
Since launch, Fleurtje has undergone four refits and been maintained to Lloyd’s class standards. Such is the degree of ongoing improvements that she is now one of the finest three-masted schooners afloat.
Fleurtje is currently lying in Monaco and her price is available on application.
