33m superyacht Long Tall Sally project signed
by Malcolm MacLean
De Valk has become the official brokerage house representing the innovative co-ownership project known as Long Tall Sally. Bringing together some of the top names in superyacht design and building, construction of the first of these 33m aluminium explorer sailing ketches will start later this year. In addition to offering a unique opportunity for fractional ownership, the yacht will sail a pre-set route to a wide range of adventurous destinations.
The Long Tall Sally project involves some highly prestigious names and offers a different approach to any other partial ownership programme. Designed by Gerard Dykstra and based on the well known Bestevaer series of performance cruisers, the hull of the first yacht (Long Tall Sally) will be built by Bloemsma Aluminiumbouw. This leading Dutch hull builder has achieved international fame for its work on the new generation of J Class yachts, as has the yard that will finish Long Tall Sally, Claasen Jachtbouw. In addition to this premium Dutch construction, London-based designers Rhoades Young are responsible for the general interior design.
