Brokers Comments
This Eight Metre International Classic offers a very rare opportunity to own a true piece of yachting history. Built in 1925 of wooden construction, Siris is an absolutely beautiful yacht, a fact backed up by its recognition by Classic Boat Magazine as one of the top 200 most beautiful yachts in the World. With her current rating certificate issued by the International Eight Metre Class Association, she is still a competitive boat in this highly regarded and greatly followed racing series that always draw good crowds and high levels of interest. Having been completely restored to concourse condition in 2000 by Farlie Restoration on The River Hamble, and owned for nearly 20 years by a passionate and well respected Eight Metre Owner, Siris is in fantastic condition and still turns heads wherever she goes.

Eight Metre International Classics do not come onto the market very often and ownership of Siris is sure to bring huge satisfaction and pride to her new owner. If you are interested in classic racing or simply want to own a stunning piece of history then Siris is a must to view
