Silène III was designed and built in 1950 by the Swedish naval architect Tore Holm for a Swiss customer. She was constructed with mahogany planks and oak frames with bronze screws. The deck renewed in 1991 is of Oregon Pine with a traditional canvas cover. The deckware is from Harken. Her mast was made in 2009 by Collars, U.K., using air-dried Oregon Pine, original drawings, and modern lightweight fittings by Burnett Yacht Design. Silène III has been maintained by one owner for the last thirty years in Finland.
It is estimated that the value of Silène III is 95,000 eur (in water, ready to sail in Helsinki or Hanko in Finland, or at your own harbour in Europe in June 2019) but any decent offers can be honoured.
