Themara was designed by the Scottish naval architects G.L. Watson & Co. was built along traditional lines to Lloyds class by Ailsa Shipbuilding, Troon, Scotland in 1962.
This compact ocean-going yacht, powered by twin Gardner diesels (now completely rebuilt) has cruised extensively in all latitudes including a circumnavigation starting in 1988.
She was also a support vessel for the filming of Luc Besson’s Atlantis.
Her interior has been rebuilt completely using varnished mahogany, in a timeless style, with modern details added for comfort. The galley has been renewed to modern standards, in stainless steel with new appliances.
The wheelhouse is light with good visibility, the original windows restored, and all the instruments updated.
The large Sun Deck is equipped with a modern hydraulic crane, and an outside seating area and pilot station.
Themara is now lying in Southern France, where considerable money has been spent on refitting her to a high standard of finish.
