Classic Boat
The Najad 373, one of the new entries among the Classic Boats launched in 1999

New year, new used boats: here come the “1999 class.” To open the year, speaking of Classic Boats, several hulls, including 34 mass-built fiberglass models that, now, become Classic Boats of historic value, have just turned 25 years old since their first launch. This adds 34 Classic Boats to the more than 200 already surveyed by our editorial staff(find them HERE). And their value increases.

Class of 1999 – 5 Classic Boats d 11.1 to 12.45 meters

Do they increase in value? Yes, but a value that is not only affective, but a real increase in the value they deserve because of their characteristics of innovation, beauty, quality, and performance. There are, in fact, boats that are worth more than others and will be worth even more over time. By now we have several times, these are the Classic Boat by Sailing Newspaper, boats built in fiberglass and in series since 1967 and with a minimum of 25 years on their shoulders, selected on the basis of very precise canons that transcend the age of the artifact and focus on its intrinsic historical value, starting with the overall design qualities and originality of the boat in its context. Below are 5 boats from the new 1999-related upgrade, Classic Boats from 11.1 to 12.45 meters.

Dufour; 11.1 x 3.77 m; 1999; Mortain & Mavrikios and Oliver Poncin

High freeboard, powerful and full hull lines, wide transom and set back maximum beam. Built starting in 1999, the Dufour 36 Classic marks a return to order for the shipyard, which is moving out of its parenthesis devoted to large metrics and back to more “modest” hulls that are easy to drive and suitable for everyone. It will be a success from 450 hulls launched.

Dufour; 11.1 x 3.77 m; 1999; Mortain & Mavrikios and Oliver Poncin

Based on the same platform from which the Dufour 36 Classic was born, the 36 CC is its mid-cockpit twin, revised in both deck lines and interior to offer a more voluminous layout, better marrying the needs of those who, above all else, seek a cruiser for long, comfortable cruising.

Najad; 11.30 x 3.65 m; 1999; Judel & Vrolijk

Classic Nordic bluewater look, protected cockpit and wide descending step stern. In ’99 Judel & Vrolijk signed the Najad 373, a sleek sloop strong with top finishes, but, even more, a deeply marine design, a cruiser to go anywhere, without too many worries. Still top for those who really like to sail.

C&C 121

C&C; 12.19 x 3.99 m; 1999; Tim Jackett

Far from the cult lines of the C&Cs of the 1960s and 1970s, like its sister 110, the C&C 121 was a boat that quickly made a name for itself, especially in terms of quality, having not lost an iota of the Canadian shipyard’s typical qualities. A very successful dual-purpose, he was able to assert himself on the cruising front as much as on the racing front. A small turn-of-the-century success story.

Dehler Yachts; 12.45 x 3.90 m; 1999; Judel/Vrolijk

Created by the Judel/Vrolijk signature, elegant and comfortable, the 41CR was created with cruising in mind, a safe and welcoming boat. The lines are sleek and elegant, the deckhouse restrained, but the interior does not disappoint, airy and roomy. A 41-footer who knew how to get respect.

The three steps to enhance your Classic Boat

Well, is your boat a Classic Boat? Now we explain how to dignify Classic Boats by Journal of Sailing and increase their value. We have created a network of professionals dedicated to precisely this enhancement.

  • The first mandatory step in enhancing the value of a historic Classic Boat by Giornale della Vela is appraisal. We have identified two “top” appraisers(Davide Zerbinati and Danilo Fabbroni) who can draw up a real Classic Boat certification and see the historical value of the boat recognized. Only by careful analysis of the state of the property and its maintenance over the years, as well as checking that the original design has not been distorted, can its value be certified.
  • Insurance is the second essential step, after the appraisal. Today it is difficult for an insurance company to value a boat that is at least 25 years old for its true value. With the Classic Boat initiative, once an appraisal is obtained from our two appraisers, the intrinsic value of the boat is also received by the insurance broker David Assicurazioni. And if the appraisal certified the boat’s excellent condition–the premium becomes more affordable! HERE you can find out more about insurance!
  • Buying and selling is the third step that required dedicated professionals: we involved one of Italy’s leading brokers(Abayachting) capable of transposing the real value of each of the current 188 selected boats, both in the case of selling and buying. It helps you sell it or buy it at the best price by selecting the best buyer or buyer, performing an assessment of the boat’s condition.
  • Our “dream team” of appraisers, insurers and brokers can be contacted with one click directly from the boat tabs (Link here).
