    Utterly stunning and completely refitted historic Sparkman & Stephens designed performance sloop from Cantiere Sangermani in 1969.


    Originally named PATRICIA III , renamed by her second owner Mr Tieger to PATRICIAN TIGER she was designed to compete in the regattas of the I Class RORC. This unique Sparkman & Stephens (design no 129), performance cruiser was completely refitted and only hit the water again in July 2022, ready to race once more as she was built for back in 1969.

    PATRICIAN TIGER boasts many specification highlights including:-
    • Complete refit 2020-2022 with all parts of the boat and her systems either completely replaced or zero-houred and overhauled
    • Flush deck design with aft coachroof and single cockpit
    • Mahogany construction over Oak frames

    • New painted aluminium rig with Quantum sails package
    • NKE navigation instruments with nav PC at chart table

    Professionally rebuilt with an amazing dedicated team of professionals that put all their blood, sweat and tears into this amazing project, PATRICIAN TIGER is now ready for her next owner. An owner with a sharp eye for quality and detail will appreciate the craftsmanship, expertise and perfect condition of this unique yacht which is now 100% ready for the 2023 season.


    PATRICIAN TIGER, built for an Italian owner Mr Vender by the Sangermani shipyard in Lavangna. Ceasare Sangermani a friend of Olin Stephens, created a racer with elegant style, and characteristics that make her so extraordinary: Beauty, Speed & Simplicity. Her fair lines, with no stretches, typical of the moment when Olin Stephens split the rudder from the keel, to reduce the water surface of the hull, leaving however an important connection between them and the skeg. This makes the Patrician amazingly easy to handle, while keeping a good stability route when sailing up-wind.


    "Patrician Tiger" has been completely restored in a very professional manner. Several sections of hull, the entire technical installation has been newly constructed, all the deck fittings and winches overhauled, the rigging completely renewed, etc.

    With a great eye for detail and with high-quality materials, this classic has been restored to new condition.”
