CIRCE exudes pure classic elegance. Designed in 1966 by the world renowned naval architects at Sparkman and Stephens and built by Derecktor Shipyards of Mamaroneck, New York, CIRCE’S racing pedigree includes one Bermuda – Copenhagen, three Bermuda races, four races to Mexico and three Transpacs. She cruised extensively in Europe and the Eastern seaboard until 1972 when she was brought to San Francisco. From 1972 to 1980 CIRCE was the flagship for the St. Francis Yacht club with countless trips to Mexico and Hawaii and two crossing to Tahiti. The current owner cruised Pacific Northwest waters before trucking this vessel to the Great Lakes. In all six owners: each one contributing to the history of this amazing yacht. CIRCE is ready for her next owner to carry on with the tradition of yachting at its finest.   After purchasing CIRCE in 2005, the present owner commissioned a substantial refit in which her teak decks and aluminum subdeck were replaced and her hull and cabin painted with Awlgrip. Deck hardware was removed and refurbished, ports were replaced, and some wiring was upgraded as well as portions of the interior headliner. The list goes on with other upgrades to her systems and structure. CIRCE shows extremely well.
