26m (85’2) S/Y Sky joins IYC Sales Fleet
IYC is pleased to welcome the beautiful classic yawl 26m (85’2) S/Y Sky to its sales fleet as a new CA, signed by Mark Elliott, IYC Sales and Charter Consultant. More than 125 years old, built in 1890 in the United Kingdom, Sky is a piece of yachting history and a rare opportunity for lovers of original classic yachts.
Lovingly maintained, in recent years Sky has undergone several refits and restorations and significant investment to bring her up to date and preserve her for the future. Two years of work between 1997 and 1999 saw her returned to her original design, while a major restoration project between 2008 and 2014 undertook an extensive worklist to transform her into the beautiful, well-equipped luxury yacht that she is today. Recent work included the replacement of 27 oak frames, a new helmsman arrangement, main engine overhaul, upgrade of her steering system, an interior redesign, and significant new electrics, navigation, communications and entertainment systems. All her recent refit works drew on the expert historical knowledge of Spencer Rigging of Cowes, Isle of Wight, to ensure she is as true to her 1890 form as possible.
With her timeless classic lines and a flush deck layout with deck gear in keeping with her original design, Sky is a stunning sight when sailing on the water. Masts, rigging and sails were all upgraded during her most recent refits, with the gaff-rigged Sky also rigged to match her original sail plan.
Interior spaces and accommodation are accessed via a doghouse located at the centerline on the yacht, with a master cabin and guest cabin and welcoming saloon with a large teak table at the centre. Restoration work saw the maximization of this interior space to create bigger and comfortable living areas with a good head height, while still retaining her traditional styling. Beautiful Honduras mahogany forms the base of her interior styling, complemented by teak flooring.
