De Valk Yachtbrokers in the Netherlands has announced the sale of the 46.30-metre classic cutter Lulworth. Meticulously restored by a Dutch sailor over a five-year period, this beautiful yacht from 1920 has been a favourite on the regatta scene since being relaunched in 2006. The new owner is an Italian gentleman who has long had a close affinity with classic yachts and is delighted to take the helm of this authentic piece of maritime heritage.

Dubbed ‘The Restoration of the Century’, Lulworth was crowned Best Refitted Yacht at the World Superyacht Awards in 2007 for the way she combines regatta performance and fine sailing in the best golden age tradition. Maintained in as-new condition, the world's largest gaff cutter has won many races in the classic regattas, achieving speeds well in excess 20 knots. Lulworth is also a fabulous yacht on which to cruise and her enthusiastic new owner is very much looking forward to the new season ahead.
