The Sterna is an oceanic yacht with very fast sailing qualities. She was designed and built in France in 2000 to break speed records in offshore sailing both with solo or short crew. She is unique; the only Open 85 feet (26 m.) in the world. The shape of her hull, the sail plan, the displacement, etc. allow her to navigate very fast, stably and with good sailing manners. She has an extensive curriculum, which includes two round the world trips and one to Antarctica. To make expeditions to the polar regions, Sterna undergoes a significant interior transformation to increase comfort without losing her sailing qualities. Today Sterna is secure, innovative, fast and comfortable.
