Type: Frers 53′ – Year of Build: 1976 – Shipyard: Palmer Johnson USA – Naval architect: German Frers
We found the Encounter, by coincidence, standing on the hard, in a shipyard in Fort Lauderdale-Florida. She had obviously been neglected for many years and she was in a sorry state. But her pedigree was easily recognised, with her beautiful lines, unmistakenly, from German Frers.
Brief negociations took place, a price was agreed, the sale took place and the refit could begin.
Work started initially in Fort Lauderdale. After some time she was transported to the South of France where we could berth the boat in the Port of Cap d’Ail, the base of our company Navimarine International.
Once here, all work has been carried out by ourselves and local sub contractors.
Welcome to this website which has been developed so as to record and share the re-birth of this beautiful sailing yacht.
