Sail Yacht CROCE DEL SUD - Martinolich

Yacht Charter Description

Classic sailing yacht CROCE DEL SUD (translated to Southern Cross), measures 42m (137,10ft) and was designed Nicholas Martinoli with collaborative design by Gino Treleani and built by Cantiere Martinolich in Lussinpicocolo, Istria in 1933. S/Y CROC DEL SUD underwent major a 3 year refit, completed in 2011, bringing her systems up to date, while retaining many of the original features. Crewed charter yacht CROCE DEL SUD accommodates up to 10 charter guests, in 5 deluxe stylish cabins.


Sailing yacht CROCE DEL SUD (ex Croix du Sud) has a traditional interior décor, boasting the stately era she so elegantly portrays. An upper lounge has a relaxing leather suite, tables, wet bar and spectacular views. Below decks, the fully air conditioned sailing yacht CROCE DEL SUD boasts a further salon, warm mahogany wood panels, traditional furnishings and exquisite fixtures and fittings. Accommodation is offered in 5 generous cabins, for up to 10 guests. The crew quarters are all forward as is the galley, ensuring guests optimum privacy.

On deck, the spruce rigged triple masted schooner CROCE DEL SUD, has ample exterior living on fine teak decks. Aft is the helm and enclosed chart room and state of the art navigation station. From the stern to the bow and with a beam of 7.8m (25.5ft), the sailing yacht CROC DEL SUD features an abundance of areas to relax, entertain and dine alfresco. S/Y CROCE DEL SUD has remained in the same family for generations, her beauty and grace are so evidently adored by her owner and professional crew.

Powered by 2 x MAN engines when not flying sails, CROCE DEL SUD is capable of 10 – 12 knots.

"She's going on for eighty, but She has the sassiness of an eighteen year-old and the mature beauty of a real queen of the sea" says her Captain, Andrea Coscia who was at the helm of the Croce del Sud on the days of the Veteran Big Boat Rally of Semptember 2011. "Being in command of this gem is really thrilling. The old waterlines restored to their original purity together with the masts and yards, which are still those of the launch, are merged with the technology and efficiency of the on-board instrumentation, which can be expected of a modern yacht".

This restoration was possible thanks to the 40.000 hours of work, from September 2008 through July 2011, involving 7 production departments of the Amico Yard work in a hangar of almost 10,000 square feet on the hull, the deck, the electrical wiring, the galley, the engines and the masts and yards of the schooner. With a difficult, but stimulating task: conservation and restoration that did not betray any of the original features of the boat and at the same time make it an efficient yacht, with today's safely standards, enjoyable to handle and comfortable for cruising for (at least) the next 20 years.
