Broker's Comments

This yacht was commissioned by Alain Bombard who died in 2005. For those of you who do no know the "Bombard Story" here is the outline:

On October 19, 1952 Bombard began a solitary trip across the Atlantic for the West Indies. He had sailed in the Atlantic Ocean solo before, but had planned to sail across it with a friend, English yachtsman Jack Palmer, but Jack abandoned ship in Tangier. Bombard sailed in a Zodiac inflatable boat called l'Hérétique, which was only 4.5 metres (15 ft) long, taking only a sextant and almost no provisions.

Bombard reports he survived by fishing (and using fish as source of both fresh water and food) with a self-made harpoon and hooks and harvesting the surface plankton with a small net. He also drank a limited amount of seawater for a long period on his trip. On the 53rd day of the journey he encountered a ship. The crew told him that he was still over thousand kilometres short of his goal. However, after the ship's crew offered him a meal, Bombard decided to go on. He reached Barbados December 23, 1952 after 4,400 km of travel. and having lost 25 kg and was briefly hospitalized. He published a book entitled "Naufragé Volontaire" about his trip in 1958.

After that Atlantic crossing owning and sailing in his 18m ketch must have seemed like dying and going to heaven. This classic yacht exudes history and classiness from every pore. This boat can only be owned by a passionate person who loves to sail the sea only in the most elegant of craft. If you are that passionate person call me now if you are not admire the pictures and dream on!
