Ocean Independence sells sailing superyacht Blue Papillon
by Malcolm MacLean
Blue Papillon was built by the renowned Dutch shipyard Jongert in steel and aluminium to a design by Peter Sijm and was launched in 1993. She is a typical example of the yard’s craftsmanship, combining elegance with excellent sailing performance. Clear decks and a low superstructure add to her sleek appeal. The deckhouse shelters a second steering position and an additional navigator’s station, plus it is furnished with two spacious dining tables for casual meals.
Accommodation is for six guests in a full beam master suite and two twin cabins, all with en suite bathroom facilities. Blue Papillon is equipped with hydraulic Lewmar winches and has a modern rig that can be handled easily by a small crew. Under power, a single Mercedes OM423 engine gives her a range of 2,500 nautical miles.
Lying in Port Vauban, France, Blue Papillon was asking €3 million.
