VISION 8mR Yacht, Camper & Nicholson

Specification

Name: VISION
Sail-No.: KC-3
Design: Charles E. Nicholson
Builder: Camper & Nicholson
Year: 1930
First Owner: Canda’s Cup Syndicate, Royal Canadian Yacht Club
Loa.: 14.02m
LWL.: 9.30m
Beam: 2.51m
Draft: 2.08m
SA: 75.70m²

Vision, the last launched of the three sister ship, has been ordered by the Royal Canadian Yacht Club to sail at the Canada’s Cup, the most important 8mR race in North America. With her beautiful and styled hull, Vision started her successful career winning the main North American races; then the boat has been modified, becoming a more comfortable boat to cruise in the Ontario Lake.
In 1978 Vision has been restored by her owner with the aim to come back to the origin, winning the races. In 1983 she won for the first time the World’s Championship in Norway and from then on she repeated her successful career as the winner of the 8mR World Championship seven times in total until 2000.
After some colorful years with different owners, Vision was abandoned at the beginning of the 2000. In 2009 she was found by Classic Yachts Consulting in very poor conditions in a shipyard in Cornwall and so she was sold to an Italian owner.
The new owner moved the boat to the Pasqui shipyard in Cote d’Azur, starting a complete restoration with the technical support of the French architect Jacques Fauroux. Hull structure as frames, planking, stern- and keel timber has been restored and where necessary replaced.
Vision is well known as a fast and competitive representor of her class and is now available as a project where her current owner already spent a lot of work in structure and construction.

As one of only six A&R yachts rigged as a Wishbone-Ketch, she remains as one of the most impressive classic yachts in the sailing world and is now offered for sale. Steeped in history the steel built SINTRA is a magnificent example of elegant design, classical performance and comfort. This classic sailing yacht was both, fast and stable capable of 13-15 knots on a reach in a good breeze. SINTRA holds an excellent record at the Antigua Race Week as well as various Mediterranean classic yacht races. Her list of owners shows names like the German coffee producer Edgar Bohlen, or the Italian automobile family Gianni Lancia. In the end Sintra came back home and is now moored in Bremen, waiting for a new owner who will wake up the sleeping beauty. Sintra has had some better days in past and so there is some work needed and we would love to assist you in bringing her back to former glory.

Der Robbe & Berking 9m Commuter

A newly built and remarkable, yet thoroughly classic motor yacht was launched in the summer of 2011 at the yard Robbe & Berking Classics. This is hull number one of the commuter yacht that was developed by the yard in conjunction with yacht designer Kay-Enno Brink and which was inspired by the legendary express cruisers of the 1920s and 30s, which were used as commuters on the US East Coast. This is the first production boat of the yard, which otherwise specialises in restorations and the building of replicas, using the original plans of historic yachts.

In its issue of March, 1926, the great American yachting magazine „The Rudder“ wrote: „Each year the number of wealthy men who commute between their summer homes and places of business increases. The Hudson and East Rivers often appear as if a yachting parade was being staged during the hour between 8.30 and 9.30 and again between 4 and 5 in the afternoon. To meet this demand, architects have been bringing out fast power craft, with ample shelter for bad weather…“ These boats were elegant, fast and seaworthy, and often also referred to as „Express Cruisers“ or simply „Limousines“.

Thistle. Big Cutter

One of the most famous big cutters from the “Golden Age” of yachting. Designed by George Lennox Watson in 1886 for a syndicate of owners based on the Clyde, she was later sold to Wilhelm, Emperor of Germany and renamed Meteor. After winning or coming second in 13 out of the 15 races that she entered in her first season, she was sailed across the Atlantic to challenge for the America’s Cup in 1887 but lost both Cup races to the defender, Volunteer. In 1891 she was sold to the German Kaiser who raced her in Cowes against the Britannia, owned by his uncle, the Prince of Wales, and later by King Edward. In 1895 she was handed over to the Germany navy and was broken up in 1921. A once in a lifetime opportunity for a serious re-build!

Vril. 5-ton Cutter

Launched around 1894, Vril was the fastest boat in the 5-ton class and the world’s first yacht with an external lead keel. This gave her a low centre of gravity and, complemented by an easily driven hull shape with a low wetted surface, made her successful on the racecourse and easily handled. In fact, Vril set a standard that changed the future of yacht design. Her original drawings are available so here is a fantastic opportunity to re-create a historic yacht that will also be exhilarating and rewarding to sail. Significant research and design work has already been carried out. Construction could either be traditional or in line with more modern boat building methods. It is also possible to fit a small engine and simple systems.

LOD: 9.85 m
LWL: 8.78 m
Beam: 1.92 m
Draft: 1.69 m
Displacement: 6.6 tons

Istria. 15 Metre Yacht

She is quite simply the most interesting 15 metre ever built in this absolutely fascinating class. Designed and built by Charles Nicholson in 1912, she had some revolutionary features. She was the first yacht with a Marconi mainmast where the topsail is not set on a separate jack-yard hoisted from deck, but on a track on the mast that extends to the full height of the topsail. This greatly reduced weight above and improved the shape of the sail. Her hull was also out of the ordinary, with a wide beam at the waterline. Nicholson also invented for her the “dinghy cockpit”, again saving weight and windage: Instead of carrying a dinghy on deck as the class rules required, he designed a dinghy that was “sunk” into the main deck and also served as the cockpit. “Istria” had 72 wins out of 81 starts but was broken up in Norway in 1924. The 15 Metre Class is now substantially revived with the prospect of four (!) yachts racing (“Tuiga”, “Hispania”, “Mariska” and the “Lady Anne”). Robbe & Berking Classics has traced sufficient archival data from a range of sources to allow an authentic re-build of Istria.

About us

Company details

The shipyard

The shipyard “Robbe & Berking Classics” was founded in the summer of 2008, following our restoration and complete re-build of the 12-metre yacht “Sphinx” to benefit from and to expand on the very special skills and expertise that have been generated for this exceptional project. Located in the harbour of Flensburg, we are now restoring classic motor and sailing yachts and are also building replicas of historic yachts that have been lost – with genuine passion, careful attention to detail and at fair prices. Please contact us for a quotation.

Since the summer of 2011, the long established classic yacht broker Baum & König also belongs to us, which is, since 1984, the first address for the purchase and sale of classic yachts. Should your classic dream yacht not be on offer officially, we can help to track it down for you. We can also find the tailor-made insurance cover for your classic boat and help with the sale of your yacht.
