1962 40' Sparkman & Stephens Centerboard Yawl


 PRICE REDUCED. “ALITA” is a Sparkman & Stephens yawl (design #1245-S), built in 1962 by Astillero Bottini in Montevideo, Uruguay. She is 39′ 7.5″ long, with a 11′ 3″ beam and 22,000 lb displacement. Her draft is 3′11″ (centerboard up) and 8′ board down. She is a sister ship of the famous Finisterre, 3-time winner of the Newport-Bermuda race (see Although Alita was built to impeccable standards, years of neglect resulted in a dried out hull, severely checked cabin sides, a deteriorated cockpit, lifting toe rails, a “frozen” engine, damaged spars, and numerous cosmetic ailments. So for the past 13 years, I’ve been working to restore “ALITA” to her former beauty. Although I’ve made significant progress, unfortunately, I don’t have the energy to complete the project. So I am offering “ALITA” for sale for $19,000. For details see:
