The Argentinian designer’s name is linked to some of the most prestigious sailing yachts in the world. His father created boats, and his son followed in his footsteps, so there are now three generations of Frers designers who have given the world some of the most stunning vessels. German’s father designed Fjord, his first yacht, back in the 1920s, when yachting was still at its beginnings in Argentina. German, his son, would go on to create many more, including Heroina.
The 73-footer (22.5 meters) was built at the Astilleros shipyard in Argentina, boasting a mast from a previous, smaller boat also designed by Frers and a shallow draft winged keel that was gifted to him by America’s Cup “Stars and Stripes” syndicate. With a cold-molded mahogany construction, open-deck volume, and a large wheel that’s easy to handle, Heroina is both strong and beginner-friendly. Up to six guests can be accommodated in three comfortable cabins, and the interior reflects a harmonious beach house style.
The famous designer has moved on to new challenges, so this classic masterpiece is up for grabs for only $3.95 million. According to Fraser, it was completely refitted over the past eight years, so its timeless style is complemented by modern performance and comfort. With almost two decades of sailing behind it, Heroina is still perfectly fit for new adventures ahead.
