Restoration  2005:


C/O  Cadamuro e  Saviane boatyard in Jesolo,   Italy

It was an overall refit . Some details:

Stripped to barewood ,the planking was found sound and original: fantastic !

Wooden rudderstock rebuilt  

All the caulking , also the teak deck . All the original bronze fittings have been restored.

Engine completely serviced to 0 hours .


New sails by Zadro sailmaker  

The inside accomodations and fornitures are original and completely restored . Great care to choose tapestry and colours .

A bed in the forward area , 2 bunks in the salon ,

Comments :

Sarah Robertson,a great seawoman, grand doughter of the naval architecht designer and builder  of Grace, owner of the 8MR Corrie in January 2008 declared in a letter:”Grace looks absolutely beautiful…”.

Grace is registered in the  British Registry as “Gentleman pleasure yacht”, and the owner has the list former owners and her history . Grace is a lovely little boat , but incredibily seaworthy and easy to handle even in rough weather .

 Unfortunately the boat was not been used during the last 5 years and some maintenances are now needed: New caulking , new painting, some overall check . Only the engine has been serviced and it is like new. The gearbox is new. 

The actual request is really extremely interesting to acquire such an antic and historically important little yacht
