36' Classic Yacht "Carita III"

 Complete restoration between 1996 and 2002

On the 18th of May 2002, after years of hard work, Carita III was re-launched in presence of a piper to emphasize
her Scottish roots and her third owner, who was very impressed by her looks! Some weeks after the re-launch,
she was re-rigged with her new sails. In addition the owners have tested her thoroughly in her 'maiden' trip to France.

She proved to be a very trustworthy and excellent sea ship on which one can stay very comfortably for a longer period of time.
The large double bed in the forepeak is definitely an asset. But the roomy galley and navigation corner also contribute
quite much! Carita can be sailed single handed, but with two she handles like a dream.
