Gipsy Moth IV SOLD

Gipsy Moth Berthon

An iconic part of our maritime history, the famous yacht Gipsy Moth IV circumnavigated the globe with Sir Francis Chichester.

Following a total rebuild (and further world cruise under the ownership of the UKSA), Gipsy Moth IV has been sold in turnkey condition – exclusively through Berthon.
