Historic Highlights/Interesting Information: Sally was one of the 14 nearly identical vessels commissioned by a group of gentlemen from the New York Yacht Club. Built and launched in 1928 in northern Germany, she and her sister ships were brought by steamship to Nova Scotia where they were then sailed to the USA.
The significance of the “10-meter” demarcation pertains not to her 59’ length or her 80’ height but rather to an involved formula created to force the yachts designers to conform to certain design criteria. Only 3 of the original hulls remain. Sally’s re-construction was completed & launched in December 2012. She was re-planked with Mahogany over laminated Purple Heart and steel frames.
Sally is available for charter.
