Launched by the well known Dutch builder Claasen Shipyards in 2005, the 25.9m (85′) sailing yacht Velacarina is a spectacular truly classic vessel, designed by respected Andre Hoek. Boasting racing green hull and elegant interior, the Velacarina superyacht is currently preparing to participate in the upcoming third edition of the Pendennis Cup, running from July 2 to 7.
Hoek designed superyacht Velacarina is a splendid ketch with tall carbon spars, a deep draft keel as well as a spade rudder. She has separate crew quarters, a large engine room and a very special feature whereby the complete tender and outboard can be stored below decks in order to be able to explore remote areas such as the Antarctic and Iceland.
Like every Truly Classic, the finely tuned profile, powerful rig, proficient modern underbody, offshore cockpit, automated sailing gear and refined interior woodwork of the 25.9m luxury yacht Velacarina turn heads wherever she chooses to cruise.
