CCYD 83 Twin Screw Centreboard Schooner – NOW SOLD

Grabau International is delighted to announce the sale of the 1984 CCYD 83 Twin Screw Centreboard Schooner ‘VALIMIRO’

Originally built for Prince Ranier III of Monaco, VALIMIRO is a comprehensively refitted and updated steel-hulled twin screw centreboard schooner from CCYD to designs by Ron Holland.


VALIMIRO was originally built by CCYD in Venice in 1984 as ‘STALCA II’ to the order of HH Prince Ranier III of Monaco and his American actress wife Grace Kelly for sailing with their three children: Stefanie, Albert and Caroline. From their combined names, came the boat name STALCA.

Following their ownership, STALCA II (now VALIMIRO) passed through two further ownerships, a German businessman and an Italian industrialist. In 2009, she was laid up ashore for 4 years before being acquired by her present owner who has subsequently undertaken a comprehensive rebuild of the yacht to bring her back to her former glory. During this refit, almost every aspect of the yacht was worked through, including:-
• Complete zero-hour rebuild of the twin Caterpillar engines
• Fitment of new Onan generator and full rebuild of secondary Onan generator
• Fitment of new teak decks
• Complete repaint of all exterior and interior metalwork
• New hydraulic systems
• New air-conditioning system
• New electronics
• Remodelled bathrooms with electric heads

With the practicality of an easily-handled schooner rig, the robust nature of the steel hull and the ‘go-anywhere’ nature of her centreboard keel, VALIMIRO is the prefect adventure yacht. Her fantastic 5-cabin plus crew interior is also luxurious enough for charter or liveaboard duties, whilst her fascinating history is sure to create conversation in any anchorage she visits.


CCYD is the acronym of “Costruzioni e Charter Yacht Diporto”, a shipyard founded in Venice by Mr. Gianfranco Padoan during the ’70s. The shipyard became famous during the ‘80s for his quality in the production of steel custom made boats designed from famous designer such as Tommaso Spadolini, Gae Aulenti, German Frers and Ron Holland.

We wish her new owners fair winds and following seas.
