About the Boat
‘Longest GRP production yacht in her day, but still a Gentleman’s yacht’
The Dutch designer E.G. van de Stadt designed the Gallant as a fast, safe and comfortable yacht to cross the oceans. In 1977/1978 Naomi James proved it was, she sailed singlehanded around the world. She was the first woman ever who did this.
The Gallant’s were built between 1967 and 1973 at Tyler’s and Southern Ocean Shipyard in England. She was the first GRP yacht to win the Lloyds Trophy, for her excellence in design and construction.
El Galante is the 19th Gallant and one of the last ones. She was built for chartering. Nowadays there is a lot of luxury and space in some yachts. Not in a Gallant. She's narrow. She's a real classic oceangoing sailing yacht.
