About Tina

The history off the ‘Tina’ 


Well it all started back in the 1950 with a man called Irving Johnson who had a dream to have a yacht designed & built to sail the world & also navigate the canals off Europe.

He approached a design company Sparkman and Stephens who designed a yacht and named it the "Yankee".  Launched in the 1959 Mr Johnson & his wife set sail & over many years travelled on board. They were featured in various articles in National Geographic and so after reading the articles, a German gentleman had the same dream to sail the world and his named was Hors van De Linden. So he had The Tina built from the same design as the Yankee.

Leigh (the current owner) was ask to bye Tina 10 years ago and turned her into a chartering yacht for the last 9 years.

She is probably the largest private sailing yacht in the bay of Pollenca, We have large sun decks, driving board and a large cockpit to escape the sun, she is very chilled friendly.
