From the board of Vincenzo Baglietto and built by the Baglietto yard – SINCERITY, originally JANUA, could be billed an Italian masterpiece. Designed as a fast comfortable cruiser her cutaway forefoot and Bermudan rig (original sail plan) make her fast and able. Her unusually high bulwarks, combined with the reserve buoyancy in her bow and stern, keep her exceptionally dry, while her long keel and 94 ton displacement steady her for easy handling, and comfort – even in heavy weather.
The yacht’s interior is mostly original, of mahogany with birds eye maple inlays, incredibly beautiful exactly as one would expect from a yacht built in Italy during this period. She is well suited for an owner’s party of five with further accommodation for a crew of four.

ACCOMMODATION AND DOMESTIC EQUIPMENT
SINCERITY unlike the great majority of this vintage, which have been gutted and had their interiors replaced, has retained probably 90% of her original interior; lovingly preserved, and resulting in the warm and inviting accommodation that was one of the hallmarks of quality yachts of her era. Interior is mahogany marquetry paneling with birds-eye maple inlays, solid red-oak parquet cabin sole. Ventilation provided by 10 opening portholes, hatches, companionways, skylights, and 8 thru-hull deck vents.
She can accommodate seven in three cabins, of which two are double staterooms and of these the owner’s is very light and spacious. The aft cabin features a double berth to starboard with a single berth opposite to port and a personal washbasin recessed in an antique vanity cabinet; the starboard cabin has an 8 ft single bed (commonly used as a double) to starboard with a single athwartships; and opposite to port is a cosy, hardwood paneled single stateroom, which with its ample storage space and location at the base of the curved staircase, can easily serve as the captain's cabin. There are 2 large opening portholes and a ventilation hatch into the deckhouse. The quarters (including head with wash basin) for an additional 4 crew are in the forepeak, forward of the galley, allowing excellent service with maximum privacy for guests. The main saloon offers dining for 8 adjacent the galley (and there is also a dining table for 8 to 12 on the deck).
The galley, which has dining space for the crew is equipped with
- Electrolux 4 burner propane stove with large oven, - Stainless steel ice box, - Electrolux 2 KW professional steamer, - Electrolux microwave, - Large built-in 220V fridge/freezer
