Sagittarius

Sagittarius is an Alan Buchanan designed ketch built in 1966. She was originally named Moshulu II. The original commissioner of the boat pulled out before completion (possibly because of a considerable overspend on her construction), so a new purchaser had to be found. She was bought by the Argyriadis family and sailed back to the family’s home waters of Greece.

During the 1980’s Sagittarius changed hands within the family and crossed the Atlantic Ocean twice, to Puerto Rico and Cuba, and the Mediterranean Sea from Spain and the Balearic islands, to Sardinia and the Turkish coast. In 1987 she took part in the Transmed Race from Toulon to Gibraltar where she took line honours.

She has been in the Argyriadis family her whole life, and is today back in Greece sailing in the Aegean Sea.
