Edmiston lists sailing superyacht So Fong for sale
by Malcolm MacLean
Built by Hong Kong's A. King Slipway in 1937 to a design by Sparkman & Stephens, she was last refitted in 2010. A gaff schooner with 242 square metres of sail, So Fong still retains her original charming features including a tiled fireplace, large storage spaces and hand carved wooden details. More modern aspects show up in the main saloon, which has a Samsung television and Bose sound system. Accommodation is for up to seven guests in three staterooms. The master has two double bunks, the port cabin has two single bunks and the starboard cabin has a single bunk. Power comes from a 190hp Perkins engine, and So Fong is fast, seaworthy and comfortable.
Her colourful history includes serving as a US Navy coastguard vessel during World War II and being held hostage for 10 years by the Vietnam government during the Cold War years.
Lying in Mallorca, Spain, So Fong is asking €1.5 million with all taxes paid.
