This German Frers 95′ sailing machine came to us for summer work to prep for winter cruising in the Caribbean. Lyman-Morse’s Building 11 was her summer home in Thomaston, and we had her back in the water and heading south in November. Fair Winds!

Layout and Design
Vesper sports a carbon mast and in boom furling from Southern Spars. The interior has lower saloon dining for eight to port and hidden entertainment viewing to starboard. Finished in a raised and fielded mahogany timber and leather upholstery, you can view the outside activities from the port and starboard hull windows.
The raised upper saloon provides all-round viewing from the port settee with navigation and refreshments to starboard. The aft accommodation has port and starboard guest cabins with separate showers and heads. Owner’s cabin aft is large for this size of yacht and has full size double bed, desk and lounging sofa.
The major feature of Vesper is the generous engine and machinery space housed under the upper saloon. It encompasses full-size head room and easy access to all equipment. Special attention has been paid to making access from the water to on-board as easy as possible, with a large boarding platform and ascending stairway.
