Bill Trip 56′ Classic Yawl

Apollonia  is a very beautiful classic yawl with stunning lines guaranteed to turn heads wherever she is moored.

A few years ago she competed in a number of Classic regattas with class wins in Antigua and Grenada.

Built by John de Dood in Germany in 1963 to a design by Bill Tripp who is remembered for designing very pretty boats that sailed better than their ratings would suggest.

Originally named Wappen Von Bremen she was built as one of two sister ships commissioned by two competing sailing clubs in Hamburg and Bremen and completed a number of Atlantic races.

She is built of double planked mahogany over cedar on oak frames with manganese bronze fastenings, teak soles on oak floors, teak laid decks over laminated and glassed marine plywood, and is fitted with an exquisite mahogany interior.

Her accomodation provides five berths in two forward cabins plus the spacious saloon, with one head and a fitted galley with oven, hob and fridge.

A few years ago Apollonia underwent a  total restoration and has been the subject of much tlc since then.

During the restoration the majority of the hull planking and many of the frames were replaced, together with the soles and bearers, the cockit, coamings, the entire deck, and many of the interior fittings. Repowered and re-rigged. The spars were replaced with aluminium and she was re-rigged and equipped with a suite of cruising sails.

Currently lying on the hard in the BVI.
