THULA, once SASSAFRAS and originally HETAIROS has been built at Royal Huisman Shipyard as HETAIROS in 1985, for an extremely experienced owner who assigned the exterior designs to Henry Scheel (1911-1993) and the interior to Pieter Beeldsnijder (1938- 2016), both prominent architects of the yachting industry. Today, more than 30 years on, THULA, has matured into one of the world’s great classic sailing yachts. In her swirling wake, she might have left many tens of thousands miles behind her, but every mile added to her reliability. Traditional looking lines, excellent seaworthiness and integrated modern technologies are describing THULA best. The classic amongst classics. Her current owner seeks a caring successor for this superb yacht, which is one of the sailing world’s great masterpieces. THULA is in an excellent condition and ready-to-go.
