Seaway Powell Marine are happy to announce that they have been involved in the restoration project of the 49m (161′) classic sailing yacht Bluenose II. This UK-based specialist in marine hydraulic equipment, deck gear, winches as well as capstans will be supplying a new C12500 Capstan with a bronze drum for the popular Canadian Bluenose II superyacht. This will be installed shortly and will be used for both mainsheet and mooring winch.
Launched by Smith & Rhuland in 1963, the 49m luxury yacht Bluenose II is an exceptional classic twin masted schooner, designed by William Roue & L Allen. She provides comfortable accommodation to 12 guests and an impressive crew of 18.
Smith & Rhuland superyacht Bluenose II is powered by twin Caterpillar diesel engines and can reach a stately top speed of approximately 11 knots. Coupled to her engines are twin screw propellers.
