Ninety and still gorgeous.
The Fife classic Kentra marked its 90th birthday this summer by slipping into the ocean again off Scotland. Launched in 1923 at William Fife’s boatyard in Fairlie, the 84-foot yacht was recently restored with the assistance of Fairlie Yachts on the Hamble.
After a leak-free trial, Kentra sailed in the Fife Regatta 2013. Among those onboard were Duncan Walker, the managing director at Fairlie Yachts whose involvement with Kentra goes back to 1987, and Olympic sailing gold medalist Shirley Robertson of Great Britain.
