She’s YN391, a 43.3m high-performance sloop for delivery in ‘13.

APRIL 2011

Then its most recent signing is a 203-tonne German Frers-drawn 43.3m (142ft) YN391 Black Papillon. Sold via Burgess, this high-performance sloop was the yard’s first post-crisis contract. The yard went for effectively two years without an order until this one. Her interior is the responsibility of Rhoades Young. The yard’s fabrication department started cutting metal for her in November and delivery is scheduled for ’13.
