German Frers chose steel as the medium for her construction due to its strength to weight ratio, and renewability. This one has just had a complete refit, which includes almost all systems now renewed. A tremendous amount of work has just been completed, and still on going at this time, soon to be in near perfect condition
.She was completed in 1980 and crewed by some of the Frers family and friends. The boat sailed around the world enjoying exotic ports and anchorages as she moved from one ocean to another. Lindisfarne was then sold to a U.S. corporation and the new owners renewed her systems, pointing her west and again sailing her around the world, her second complete circumnavigation.

Lindisfarne's beautiful design is familiar in hundreds of ports and anchorages worldwide. In 2000 the current owner bought Lindisfarne and sailed her throughout the waters of the Northeast U.S., Bermuda and the Eastern U.S. He has just completed a thorough refit of the boat.

A study of her lines reveal an undeniable influence from the greatest yacht designers of all time, Alden, Herreshoff, and of course German Frers, creating a fast, stable, “all oceans” cruising yacht with a traditional appearance and a modern and extremely fast underbody.

With her fresh new Refit, She is prepared for her next circumnavigation and capable of delivering them safely and quickly anywhere. Owner can deliver anywhere in the world.

Now that Lindisfarne has arrived in St. Petersburg, all updates can continue on schedule.  Updates now complete include the following: 

All steel panels that needed to be replaced were in 2014 Bow Thruster New Flag Blue Awlgrip on hull Decks Painted New Doyle Main, Mizzen jib with stack pack All Cockpit Dodger, Bimini, and Side curtains New inflatable Dinghy and Motor
