Classic Bailante Olin Stephens for sale FYS MALLORCA


Described as “…the world’s finest example of wooden boat building today…” at its launch from Rod Stephens.



1.000.000 € VAT Paid

The beautiful Classic Bailante is designed by Sparkman & Stephens and produced by the Danish boatbuilder Aage Walsted. Frisell selected Aage Walsted to build her on Rod Stephen’s powerful recommendation as the best. They then spent a lot of time at the Walsted yard during the production. Having announced that she would be his last boat; on completion he departed in her – more than satisfied – for the Mediterranean.

On arrival there, in short order as he tied up, the man who took his lines, apparently already seduced by KAY, invited Arne to sell her to him. A few discussions later with his possible buyer, who was unwilling himself to get another built, Arne decided to agree to his offer, considerably more then he has paid, expenses and sufficient incentive to go back to Walsted himself.

She has been refitted in 2010 and again very recently. This leaves her in such good shape and to her former glory!
