This vessel was custom built in Oakville Ontario, Canada, by the famous team of Cuthbertson & Cassian of C&C Yachts fame for the former conductor of the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra; Herbert Von Karajan. She was started in 73 but launched at the end of "74". The original name of this yacht was "HELISARA" and was extensively raced in the Mediterranean Sea. She was sold to a French admiralty lawyer who continued racing her in the mediteranian. The current owner purchased this yacht in January 1984 and sailed her at that time across the Atlantic to Antigua. She was raced in Antigua race week 1984 and then sailed north to Bermuda and finally to the great lakes. Kohinoor was raced occasionally in the lakes until 1992 at which time it underwent a 10 year refurbishment where nearly everything was upgraded or replaced. She went back into the Great Lakes fall of 2002 and was shipped to Seattle in the fall of 2003. She then underwent complete repaint of topsides and bottom at that time and was moored at Roche Harbor in 2004. It remained at Roche until 2006 when it was again put on the hard until fall of 2010. There has been in excess of $1,200,000 spent on the complete refurbishment of this fine yacht. It is only with great sacrifice that this yacht is now for sale awaiting your scheduled visit to beautiful San Juan Island to board her.
