_JRT9830Designed in 1964 by Cesare Sangermani and built in the Ligurian shipyard of the same name, this Marconi Yawl was designed to participate in the famous Transpac Regatta, from San Francisco to Honolulu. Launched in 1966, Paulena is certainly a vessel that does not go unnoticed. After a stint in the Adriatic and renamed “Caligo,” in 2010 it was purchased by the French De Ganay family, who, in the spirit of seafaring tradition, renamed it with the original name Paulena. In recent years, the owner family has carried out major cosmetic and functional interventions that have, even more, restored Paulena to the splendor of her launch day, to arrive in splendid shape in 2016, when the hull will turn 50 years old. Paulena is used for family use but can be chartered for cruises and regattas.

The interior consists of a spacious and bright dinette with a dining table suitable to comfortably accommodate up to ten guests. Aft is the so-called owner’s quarters consisting of a large full-width cabin with two large single beds, shower room and sink, a toilet room with sink and shower, and a large single cabin. Toward the bow are two guest berths both with bunk beds served by a large bathroom with sink, shower and toilet.Crew quarters and galley are located forward in separate and independent rooms.
