S/V Zephyros

S/V Zephyros is a Boreal 47 launched in September 2017.

Named after the Ancient Greek god and personification of the gentle west wind (Ζέφυρος), the boat is an expedition design intended to safely and comfortably sail wherever one might go from the high latitudes to the tropics. The boat is built of aluminum with a lifting centerboard, a single protected rudder, two adjustable dagger boards, a sloop rig, and a watertight doghouse.
