Bonite SUI 23 zum Verkauf
Ylliam IV, Bonite II, Atalante und Bonite... waren all die Namen dieser 6mR. Die Yacht wurde 1938 im Auftrag von M F. Firmenich bei Tore Holm in Gamleby (Schweden) gebaut mit dem Ziel, die „Bol d‘ Or“ Regatta zu gewinnen. Zeitgleich wurde bei Torre Holm die identische Schwesterjacht und Olympiasiegerin „Fågel blå“ auf Kiel gelegt. Die ersten Jahre segelte die Jacht auf dem „Lac Leman“ und erreichte an Regatten nationale Erfolge. Im Jahre 1960 wurde die Rennjacht an die Segelschule „Thunersee“ verkauft und diente dort zusammen mit der 8mR – Jacht „Cupido“ als Trainingsboot. Seit dieser Zeit trägt nun die Jacht den neuen Namen „Bonite“. Bonite wurde auf dem Thunersee berühmt, nicht zuletzt, weil viele Schüler auf ihr den Segeleinstieg fanden.

One of the latest and fastest classic Sixmetre ever built.
She is in very poor condition and needs a total rebuild. The work done is a new front keel, new laminated main frames (done by the most famous boat builder in Sweden, Mr. Thomas Larsson.). We also have good material for the planking (hibachi as original.)
