DONA FRANCISCA
Luxury Sailing Yacht for Sale |
52.50 m / 172 ft | Astilleros Buquebus | 2014

INSTANT BOOKING

Dona Francisca is built entirely in carbon fibre, and at an impressive 52.5m in length, the striking Dona Francisca is the largest schooner of her kind. Dona Francisca was launched in 2014 from Astilleros Buquebus, and was the brainchild of a successful entrepreneur with a dedicated interest in the sea and transportation. Inspiration for Doña Francisca's design, by Javier Soto Acebal, came from the English pilot cutters of the early 20th century and the result is a neo-classic yacht with an eye-catching style, capable of exhilarating performance and worldwide cruising.

Dona Francisca's exceptional quality and full-custom design, place her in the same league as iconic superyachts such as Meteor (Royal Huisman) and Marie (Vitters Shipyard), yet with a total displacement that's 25% lighter. Dona Francisca's hull and deck were constructed using a 'sandwich' method, which sees carbon fibre skins impregnated with epoxy resin over a rigid PVC foam core - a proven build technique that delivers a light yet incredibly strong structure.  

The four-year long build process was overseen and controlled by some of the world's leading experts in this field, and the yacht has been inspected and certified by RINA.

Only the most advanced hardware and components have been used, and done so with a careful consideration to her classic style; all of the deck fittings and blocks were made with a special bronze alloy to a precise hue of green, including the winches and windlass bodies, which house Harken systems. Dona Francisca's rigging comes courtesy of Swiss experts Carbo-Link, and her sail wardrobe is from Doyle New Zealand, all effortlessly controlled from the cockpit thanks to her advanced hydraulic-electric systems.

Dona Francisca's interior configuration allows for a four cabin layout, featuring a full-beam master suite with his and hers bathrooms as well as a private study, two VIP suites and one guest double. The remaining living space is comprised of a large deckhouse, an elegant and comfortable salon with both lounge and dining areas, and an ample-sized galley, all panelled in mahogany with cherry and chestnut flooring.

Dona Francisca's decks are laid with Burmese teak while the deck salon, doghouse and cockpit are finished in Cedar wood.

Main Features:

  • The largest carbon fibre schooner in the world

  • Light and strong hull construction

  • Built to RINA certification

  • Teak decks

  • High-tech systems

  • Remarkable sailing performance
