Northrop and Johnson is proud to present classic Sawn 65′ charter yacht KING’S LEGEND, a legendary sailing and racing yacht, collecting trophies on the podia of  Europe, New Zealand and Australia.

Most notably, in 1977 KINGS LEGEND participated in the 27,000 mile extremely challenging Whitbread Round The World Race.  The race takes yachts around the world, with just a few stops along the way in Cape Horn, Capetown, Sydney and Rio de Janeiro. KING’S LEGEND achieved a second place behind the winner the Dutch Flyer!

The current owner acquired her in 1999, sailed her to Holland and commenced  a year-long refit, keeping the original Sparkman & Stephens design and slender lines intact.  The owner’s dedication to the renovation was rewarded at the 2013 Sparkman & Stephens Swan Rendezvous in Elba where KINGS LEGEND won the Zeppelin Prize for the Concourse d’Elegance.  ‘The Legend’ chartered very successfully in Europe, with guests returning year after year.

Sailing yacht KINGS LEGEND, now resprayed a whisper grey colour,  has a traditional nautical interior in warm teak wood She has three private cabins – two twin bunk beds and one main cabin with a double bed-  and accommodates six charter guests. There is one extra berth in the main cabin, which can be used during racing and long distance cruising. A fourth (forward) cabin is for use by the crew. There are two shared heads with shower and toilet.

Skipper Gijs van Liebergen’s specialty is to train non-experienced individuals into a strong racing team.  A (company) racing team can include up to 12 members. After the exciting racing in day time, leisurely dinners and comfortable hotel rooms are arranged ashore. Additional race crew is hired for the duration of the race and the whole team will be actively sailing and working together for the best results in exciting sailing yacht races.

From November 2016, sailing charter yacht KING’S LEGEND is available in Southeast Asia. Whether to be enjoyed for holiday cruising, serious racing or corporate sailing events will be up to you! Her location will be in Myanmar, Thailand/Malaysia and the Andaman Islands.

KING’s LEGEND’s charter rate is  EUR 13,200 per week All Inclusive. Racing charters are EUR 22,000 per week (dinner and accommodation ashore).
