2001, Spirit of Tradition Sloop, 47’

First launched in 2001, LENA with her graceful good looks and blazing speed is the spark that ignited the resurgence of the classic yacht esthetic and the production of larger “Spirit of Tradition” type daysailers by major yacht manufacturers both in the United States and overseas. LENA is also the inspiration for Brooklin Boat Yard’s newest one design class the Eggemoggin 47 of which LENA is considered to be hull #1.

From 2001 to 2005 LENA was used primarily for inshore racing here on the coast of Maine garnering numerous wins and plenty of silverware along the way.

Under her current ownership LENA has been used primarily for day sailing here in Brooklin Maine on the Eggemoggin Reach and surrounding waters. LENA has benefitted from this ownership by the addition of sailing handling equipment such as the roller-furling headstay and an improved traveler control system making her even easier to operate when sailing short-handed or solo.
