From the Mari-Cha stable of high quality performance yachts, this Germán Frers fast cruising / racing sloop 'Bristolian' with her timeless elegance grasps the attention of all sailors whether racing or cruising.

The clean working deck, spacious guest friendly cockpit and inimitable style and energy of 'Bristolian’s' lightweight Nomex honeycomb interior, designed by Francois Catroux, reinforces the brief given to Germán Frers to achieve a marriage of a luxury cruising yacht with racing thoroughbred; a pedigree which with her constantly updated specification continues to prove her well maintained condition and performance ability on the race track.
