Salespersons Comments:

KYRATHENA (pronounced 'KYRA'  K eye ruh which is Greek for Lady)  is a cutter rigged ketch that is equally well suited for use as a live aboard, a Bluewater cruiser, a charter vessel or a tourist attraction. Sistership to the infamous Formosa 51 used for the filming of the movie Captain Ron.  She features all the amenities of home and a spacious deck area for watching sunsets and hosting parties. Currently berthed in Port Clinton, OH, she has been in storage for 9 years, inside for the winters, outside under shrink wrap for the summers. With some TLC, she can be returned to the same beautiful condition that she was in during her glory years.  Original wooded mast replaced with aluminum masts, newer standing rigging and running rigging that has only been in fresh water since being replaced. Original ships wheels and many other items are in storage for safekeeping and will go with the boat.  KYRATHENA will provide you many years of pleasure, no matter where you decide to sail her. Classic yacht that is a project worth taking on.

Dave Regnet learned to sail when he was 8 at summer camp on Lake Chautaugua. He returned 7 more summers because sailing (and teaching others to sail) became his passion. Dave grew up in Buffalo where he has been active in the Buffalo Harbor Sailing Club since the early 1980s. In 2007, Dave moved to the Dallas/Fort Worth area and became active in the Lake Grapevine Sailing Club. Returning north in 2010, Dave and his wife, Rebecca, joined the St. Marys Boat Club located on Grand Lake St. Marys. He was club champion in 2017. Dave’s retirement from over 30 years in manufacturing, sales management, and plant operations allows him to pursue his passion for boating by adding value to buyers and sailors alike in the Sandusky area of Lake Erie.
