BRISTOLIAN is an exceptional and well know performance cruising yacht. From the board of German Frers she started life as MARI-CHA II. Conceived and built for an owner who was involved with the sailing and operation of the yacht her layout is perfect for both a regatta and long distance cruising role. She combines sparkling sailing with comfort below decks and ample crew accommodation forward.
As BRISTOLIAN she enjoyed a major refit and through the years her owners have regularly updated her.
Her interior, designed by Francois Catroux is executed in lightweight Nomex honeycomb and looks current today. Her exterior is classic and very distinctive. There are but few yachts out there that are instantly recognisable and BRISTOLIAN is certainly one of these. She has enjoyed an illustrious regatta career with far too many results to sensibly list here.
With a carbon rig and in-date standing and running rigging, BRISTOLIAN comes with a recent wardrobe of North Sails including 3Di mainsail, 3Di racing jib, Furling jib, 3DL jib top, spinnaker staysail, A2, A3 and A5. During the winter 2014 / 15 she completed a full rig and rudder out refit and boom and spreader re-paint.
