The Vintage 43 day-sailer...

Design

She’s the latest creation from Belfast, Maine-based Stephens Waring Yacht Design for Italian-American company Rivolta Yachts, which is normally associated with motorboat offerings.

DECEMBER 2011

Belfast, Maine-based Stephens Waring Yacht Design’s latest creation is soon to launch. She’s the gloriously-retro Vintage 43, commissioned by diversified Florida-based Italian-America company Rivolta Yacht, which is more normally associated with motorboats. She has a 75hp Yanmar saildrive, lift-keel, carbon mast and swept-back spreaders that eliminates the need for a backstay and allows a big-roach main.
