new stainless steel standing rigging fitted to each
of her spars. The UK-based Ratsey & Lapthorn
loft renewed her sail inventory so she now
carries two jibs, three staysails, two fisherman
mainsails and a mizzen. Her accommodation
also benefited from the installation of a new
reverse-cycle heating and air-conditioning
system.
While in Virginia, USA, in 2005 she completed
her ninth five-year survey for her Lloyd’s
classification, with work undertaken on her
rudder, steering system, propellers and teak
deck. In 2006, the winches on deck were
internally renewed and the motor on the anchor
windlass was rebuilt. A new sun awning was
installed and many of the canvas covers on deck
were replaced.
Throughout the last 22 years, Fleurtje has
been consistently overhauled, modernised,
rebuilt, redecorated, refitted and renewed so
effectively that she is now in the best condition
of her life. She is certainly one of the finest
three-masted schooners currently afloat. Now,
after just two owners, this truly tremendous
transatlantic schooner is for sale and seeking a
third special owner, who will be happy to
shower this majestic lady with affection and
attention as she approaches her half-century.
Brokers Edmiston & Company have her on the
market at $14.75 million.
In the 1960s Yachting World Annual they
comment: ‘A yacht such as this would, in any
period be remarkable, in the present day of
small yachts, she seems frankly magnificent. Her
place in the history of yacht architecture is
assured, for technical developments have moved
rapidly and far since the last sailing yacht of her
size was built and there is Carita alone to reveal
what the mid-twentieth century architect and
builder can make of such a ship.’ Those words
still ring true today, some 47 years after she was
originally launched.
