Sailing Yacht Algue

A Unique Classic Yacht

Algue is a 42 foot ( 12.80m ) Bermudian Cutter that was built in 1948 in northern France. She has been based down in the Mediterranean waters for most of her life with her home now the Port of Cannes.

Algue underwent a restoration project… and has been sailing again since the 2018 season.

Whether you want to take a romantic cruise around the Îles de Lerins in the Bay of Cannes, bathing in the crystal clear turquoise Mediterranean waters, or explore the world famous Cap d’Antibes or Theoule sur Mer under the unique Estérel mountains Algue caters for all…

A piece of history

ALGUE was designed in 1948 by a young Swedish yacht designer by the name of Olle Enderlein. She was built at the renowned shipyard Le Marchand in St Malo for a French doctor who desired a solid, all round yacht that could perform in various conditions.

Measuring 42 feet on deck, Algue was built as a Bermudian Cutter to tackle the tricky waters of the Northern Atlantic. She was built as a Racer / Cruiser, with a balance between comfort and speed. The construction consists of teak planking on oak frames, with the original teak interior freshly restored.

The traditionally laid teak deck has been re-caulked and is close to 30mm solid teak. The mast is the original 7/8ths fractional Oregon Pine rig measuring over 15m.
