172' Custom 2014 | DONA FRANCISCA

LOCATION: Punta Del Este, Uruguay



Dona Francisca is a fully custom, state-of-the-art superyacht. Javier Soto Acebal, the Naval Architect, took design inspiration from the early English Cutters of the early 20th century. The leading experts in each field were hired to implement the most advanced hardware and components during a four-year build process. An amazing amount of attention to detail went into the design and installation of each element of Donna Francisca to create and maintain a classic look. Her exceptional interior makes room for a four-cabin layout, featuring a full-beam master suite, a private study, two VIP suites, and one guest double room. The remaining living space includes a spacious deckhouse and an elegant salon with a lounge and dining area. Her galley is paneled in mahogany with cherry and chestnut flooring. Performance is ensured on Donna Francisca with carbon fiber rigging from Carbo-Link and an America's Cup style of construction for carbon masts and booms. She also has the most advanced sails from the famous Doyle Sail Loft in New Zealand. Donna Francisca is designed for an experienced owner who craves a sailing yacht that's capable of cruising the world’s oceans in comfort and exhilarating performance. She is a modern classic.
