Here is an opportunity to save a part of sailing history. Designed by Sparkman & Stephens and built by Nevins in 1937 for tobacco heir R.J.Reynolds, BLITZEN went on to establish an enviable racing record including winning the 1939 Transpac and Class B in the 1938 Bermuda Race, her first summer. Owned for over 20 years by her present owner, she is now in need of a rebuild that he is not willing to undertake. She is a true classic and fast and well worth rejuvenating.

This incredible boat is offered at a very attractive price of $225,000 and must be sold soon. She started life as a Swan 47 but has been transformed into a shorthanded cruiser, capable of sailing anywhere in the wold. The owner had many modifications done in the US before sailing her through the Pacific to New Zealand where he cruised extensively and had more modifications and updating done before sailing her back to the East Coast via the Straights of Magellan. Truly an unique boat, she must be seen to be appreciated. Carbon Spars, protected steering position, water maker, generator, extensive electronic navigation, twin carbon poles.... the list goes on and on. She is in the water and ready to take you to the ends of the earth or transatlantic.
