About Peer Gynt

The refit of Sultana reads like a novel, starting in 2007 with the discovery of her bare hull on the hard in Beaulieu sur Mer and ending five years later at the Feadship yard in Makkum. There is of course a preface to the tale, with the launch in 1969 of the 26-metre canoe stern Feadship Din-Dina. How she ended up abandoned in France four decades later is another story but the Dutch yacht manager who found her and the new owners who purchased Sultana were determined to save this beautiful example of our yachting heritage.

The refit brief was simple: maintain the pedigree and comfort, add modern entertainment and exterior lounging options, use modern techniques for power storage and keep the original Gardner engines (which are now proudly on display via a window). The whole refit was carefully planned and prepared to seek innovative cost-efficient solutions that kept the project within a reasonable budget. You can see the impressive results in this special refit brochure released to celebrate the relaunch.
