Sailing Yacht Zefira Calls at Fairhaven Shipyard
June 13, 2012
Southcoast Today: Seen from the New Bedford side of the river, the single mast of the 164′ super-sized sailboat Zefira towers above all other boats at the Fairhaven Shipyard and even makes the town’s commercial wind turbines appear small.
“It’s just here for some routine maintenance,” Kevin McLaughlin, one of the shipyard’s owners, said Monday as his workers inspected the underwater surface of the aluminum hull.
Built in New Zealand by Fitzroy Yachts, the luxurious vessel was launched in 2010 and is registered in Valletta, Malta.
