    Hi Martin. It was built by Franz Maas in Breskens, Holland, in 1963. It was built for a wealthy UK sailor (James Napier White) for sailing the Fastnet. He eventually took the boat to Malta where he thought up and designed the course for what is now known as the Rolex Middle Sea Race. Sandettie raced in that event 14 times. The boat was built to a class design, known as Breeon Class. There is some detail scattered across the internet. She is an excellent offshore boat though, by comparison to modern craft, she is narrow and has limited accommodation. However given the choice of sailboats for a rough passage, I would choose Sandettie over the Hunter/Beneteau, Catalina styles everyday. While she is no longer competitive with modern day, purpose built racing craft, Sandettie is still very slippery and can put on a turn of speed which, especially in a serious chop, can absolutely daunt the best of club racers. Best wishes, David.
