Advertiser's comments

Beautifully restored of one of the most winning Canoe Shape design from Eugene Cornu, JALINA represents a beautiful turn-key solution for who is looking to get into the classic regattas circuit with a winning boat.   FURTHER BROKER’S COMMENTS:   “Un magnifique animal de course” this is how, in 1953, the French magazine Le Yacht described JALINA, born from the pencil of the established French designer Eugène Cornu.   At the time the boat had already shown how much it was worth, winning in 1947 the Cowes-Dinard and the Cannes-Portoferraio.   In 1953 he won the first Giraglia, repeated in the two following years in his own class. Other victories were won by Porto Azzurro-Anzio in 1955 and at Ajaccio-Monaco in 1957.   The originals designs from Mr. Cornu are now held in the Musee National de La Marine in Paris as JALINA was one of the first sailing boat to gain victory in some of the most ambitious regattas against the English boats.   JALINA was bought by her current owner in 2007 and she has been completely restore in Elba Island from Bonacina brothers between 2007 and 2010. Her highlights include:-

  • Khaya mahogany construction
  • Structural teak deck
  • One cabin layout with one head
  • Full list of Zaoli Dacron racing sails from
  • ORCI GPH 668,7, done in 2017 with a scanner measurement
  • CIM APM 212,9
  Recent Refit History:
  • Keel overhauled – 2015/2016
  • Cockpit new paint - 2017
  • Deckhouse paint yearly
  • Hull paint -  2017
  • Washboard paint – 2019
  • Mast, boom and jib boom paint – 2019 
  JALINA is now for sale as her owner already embark on a new project and wish to find a passionate sailor who would like to take care of this beautiful boat.   DESIGNER’S OVERVIEW:   Eugene Cornu.   “He spent his childhood in Nantes. His uncle, who works at Chantiers de l'Atlantique in Saint-Nazaire, teaches him to draw hulls. In October 1919, he joined Nieuport, a pioneer of aeronautical construction, near Paris. On February 1, 1923, he was hired by Paul Jouët at his shipyard in Sartrouville.   He worked much before the Second World War on regatta dinghies, and after the war turned on cruise ships in collaboration with the Jouët shipyard in the Paris region; from there was born the famous Beluga (weighted dinghy of 1943). This is the real beginning of his career.   From 1942 to 1957, he designed a dozen models whose hulls are made of wood, as well as light dinghies.   From 1946 to 1958, the Jouët shipyard launched at least a dozen boats designed by Cornu, including one on which Jacques Brel learned to sail, and at least six pleasure boats. On the other hand, built by the Pichavant shipyard, apart from the Belouga, the Seagull and other successful series, we owe him 14 sailboats and two stars. Aquarius is one of the Norwegian rear ketch produced by this shipyard.   After his death, his archives were deposited at the Naval Museum, which has about 130 of his plans.   The 470 Olympic dinghy (produced more than 18,000 copies) also bears the Cornu signature, but it was designed by André Cornu who is none other than the first cousin of Eugene Cornu.".   From wikipedia   A BRIEF OF THE BOAT HISTORY:   Jalina, born from the pencil of the architect Eugene Cornu, creator of famous boats like Glianne, Crazy CLoud, Morniz, Laer Mor, Striana, Kriss III, Pie Chris, Forban IV, Hallali, Marie Berte, Ondine, Janabel.
