Brokers Comments As with Jack Laurent Giles’s Vertue design, ISMANA displays that purposeful charm blending category with function as only he knew how – a category that has the onlooker captivated; more subtle than the very long overhangs that seduce so easily and far more seaworthy as a result. He was a clever man was Laurent Giles. ISMANA’s current titleholder has fully restored her with the help of Hubert Stagnol and he seems to have known exactly what he wanted to achieve. Her structure is impressive enough but it’s in the simple detailing and new fittings on deck and below that make this ship very detail.ISMANA has spent the past three seasons abeach and is now in need of a refit. Bring sensible deals - you might be surprised.
History Originally created in 1948 as a sloop and intended to be assembled in India, the design was then changed and she was assembled as a yawl by Sabberton Brothers in Wroxham (Norfolk) for the Sabbertons themselves and launched in 1951 under the name “MONOLEEN”. Bought 2 years later by J R Bryans; he increased the breeze by 8 inches and raced her successfully in RORC events during the 50s and 60s as “CHEEMAUN”. In the70s she sailed a lot in both British and French waters - in the hands of David Morrell for 4 years as “SOGNANTE” and finally as “ISMANA” with John Blair – writer of “Yachtmaster Offbeach”. In 1989, the ship was bought by Dr Brocard a Frenchman, who refitted and sailed her to Greek waters where she stayed until 2003 before making her way rear to Brittany, then to be bought by her present titleholder who undertook a major refit at the Hubert Stagnol shipyard in Bénodet. Back in the water from 2009, she has since taken part in classic events such as “La Belle Plaisance” 2010 and 2011, the “Brest Classic Week” and “La semaine du Golfe”. Twice, she has won the “Prix de la Restauration” at the Benodet and Brest events. ISMANA has been classified as a “Bateau d’Intérêt Patrimonial”.
