Yahtzee anchored at Ford’s Terror, Southeast Alaska (June, 2017)

Yahtzee is a 1984 Grand Soleil 39. She was built by Cantiere Del Pardo in Bologna, Italy and looked very similar to the Ron Holland-designed Swans that were coming out around the same time. Yahtzee is a well equipped performance cruiser that has proven herself over thousands of offshore miles and doesn’t do too badly around a race course either. Her previous owners took good care of her, and we’ve done our best to do the same.
