|Built at Scorpio Yachts, Canada 1999, put in the water 2000 and then dry sailed in fresh water (lake Michigan) until 2006. New Bow Sprit and deeper Keel being added for this season (2011) as well as an all new interior.|
Designed by one of the world’s top yacht designers this Andrews 72’s design descends from a line of light weight high performance Turbo-Sleds and combines lines reminiscent of a Swan with the efficiency and practicality of a modern sprit boat.”
Launched by Scorpio Yachts Inc (Ontario) in 1998, Safara sailed the fresh water classic Mackinac Races that year before charter seasons in the Caribbean and New England. From 2002 to 2006 she returned to the Great Lakes again completing successful campaigns in both Mac races. After a refit in 2004, Safara was re-launched in July 2006 and sailed back to her home in Newport, continuing south to the West Indies where she kept pace against performance yachts with longer waterlines, winning her class in the 2010 St. Martin Heineken Regatta. Safara now returns fresh from a refit season in the Mediterranean.
“There is not an ugly line on this entire design. It's immediately obvious that this boat is good-looking, from any angle. The ultra delicate sweep of the sheer combines with the low sedge of the cabin to give us a very contemporary-looking yacht in the classic style established by the Swan line. Combined with the simplicity of the interior, with one of the most effective uses of a carbon-fibre and foam-core structures that provides a quiet and comfortable setting in a perfect marriage of form and function. Nobody said it had to be complicated to be good".
