Further Comments

A true classic in excellent condition. Fairwyn is a keel/centerboard yawl, designed by Sparkman and Stephens in New York and built under the supervision of Rod Stephens at the yard of James McGruer and Co. in Clynder, Scotland in 1957. She is essentially a larger version of the famous Finisterre, three-time winner of the Newport to Bermuda race in the 1950s. Fairwyn was built for Halifax businessman Charles MacCullogh who raced her extensively from Newport to Bermuda, from Marblehead to Halifax, eventually winning Nova Scotia’s most prestigious trophy, The Prince of Wales Cup which was presented to the crew by H.M Queen Elizabeth in 1959. In her entire 57-year history, Fairwyn has had only two owners, the first being the MacCullogh family in Halifax, NS, and the second being the present owners who have cruised her extensively in the Pacific and the Atlantic. She has recently completed a 15 year cruise from Vancouver to Central America, through the Panama Canal up the Eastern Seaboard to Newfoundland, the Azores, the Mediteranean and back. She is presently in her home port of Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. As well as her success as a racer in her early life she has proved to be a comfortable and swift passagemaker and with her shallow draft, an excellent yacht for coastal cruising. Sitting at anchor her classic lines never fail to draw admiring glances from other skippers. She comes fully equipped for cruising in both hot and cold climates.
