HISTORY & DESCRIPTION:

Designed by the legendary Alan Pape, this 50ft Cutter Rigged Ketch was built by Frank Curtis & Pape Brothers Ltd in Looe Cornwall under Lloyds survey and was originally commissioned in 1975 as SUMMER WIND for John Radford of Newstead Abbey, Nottinghamshire. Originally stationed in Lymington and then in later ownership renamed KEFFY. In 2001 she underwent a three year £250,000 complete refit. The interior refitted with solid cherry, having fielded panelled doors and beautiful curved fiddle rails. In 2004 KEFFY was selected to participate in the Classic Boat Festival in Brest where she led the field. Since then she has sailed the Mediterranean, the North Sea and Atlantic extensively. Maintained to the highest standards, today she is based at the newly opened and exclusive Marina Di Valletta in Pieta in Malta and is regularly seen leisurely cruising the western Mediterranean islands. With her classic lines, teak and varnish details she is a real head turner and equally at ease blue water cruising or circumnavigating.
