Built in 1938 to race for Italy, Pinuccia is our magnificent 8 metre classic yacht


Pinuccia won’t be in the water this year but we are looking forward to summer 2021


Somehow it seems appropriate that, after this beautiful yacht’s adventurous, once notorious, life, she is now tucked away in a beautiful sailing area, enjoying the occasional race, no longer having to prove something for dictator.

From May to the end of September, our skipper will take you sailing around Falmouth bay. This area, which includes the estuary of the Helford and the Fal rivers, is one of the most beautiful and safe areas for sailing in Britain. You shouldn’t go without one of our fresh picnics and a very good bottle of wine.
