Sailing yacht PROVENANCE (ex ALGAIOLA) is a classically designed, auxiliary ketch with the character and style from the1960’s with luxurious comfort, amenities and advantages of a modern yacht. Her strength and long range will provide endless enjoyment for local and world cruising.
PROVENANCE is a 28m ketch designed by renowned naval architect Alan Buchanan and built in Italy by Cantiere Craglietto Yard number 62. Her keel was laid in 1967 and she was completed in 1968.
She benefitted from an extensive rebuild and upgrade completed in 2019.
Provenance is carvel built of mahogany and oak. She underwent a substantial €13 M refit in Malta from 2012 to 2019 where she was completely stripped out, partly re-planked, beams and floor replaced with laminated beams, re fastened and sheathed with epoxy. The extensive refit enables MCA coding.
PROVENANCE ketch rig boasts carbon fibre spars with hydraulically operated in mast furling and sail control systems by Lewmar enabling full single-handed control of the sails from the wheelhouse or outside helm station. Her modern design and large battery bank enable her to sail in silence without generators for over 12 hours at a time using a separate 4 x 24V motor Lewmar power pack.
