GOELETTE DIVA Year 2014490 000 € VAT not paid
The owner of this very nice gaff schooner had one childhood dream; one day, he will build his dream yacht, a simple, timeless appearance and elegant gaff schooner; the one you can see when you close your eyes and imagine "a beautyful sailboat"... But all this was also inspired by the regatta experience he had and also by the Daniel BOMBIGHER's designs, this is the reason why Hervé COUTAND was appointed with the general hull shape and design. Wether the general lines were to be as classical as possible, the underwater design, together with a very modern rigging (aluminium masts and Dyneema standing rigging) had to be efficient: no way to stick on the water... And here we are.
This boat has been in my mind for years. Some question and a permanent search for elegant and simple solutions, but most of all, a combination of my two passions, nice sailboats and woodworking. I entrusted profesionals such as the Hervé Shipyard in La Rochelle with the main part of the ship's buildind, but I kept some works I wanted to accomplish; the booms and the major part of the inside layout. I am very proud and happy when I look at the result; mixing the modern lacquered and the "Art Nouveau" style woodworks. This gives the exact warm wellness feeling I wanted to have inside the boat. This sailboat is elegant and performing, funny to operate and simple to handle with a short handed crew and even solo. I would have sailed much more aboard my dream yacht, but my health changed and it would not be serious to go on.
