Diablesse

28-meter sailboat

The sailing yacht Diablesse has historical significance as the largest sloop in the world in 1985. She is equipped with a centreboard which varies her draft from 2.8 to 5.6 meters. Diablesse has accomplished at least three circumnavigations and still has her original three-spreader rig and wire rigging. The rig was an innovation at the time as it was welded in all-aluminium fittings as opposed to steel which was the norm.
