Yacht “Kupava”

Kupava under construction

In Summer of 1982 the construction of another yacht had begun. She was named ‘Kupava”. The key crew was that from yacht “Gonta”. The experience gained at the building of the first yacht paid back. If to build just the hull of “Gonta” (no deck) took us a whole year – on “Kupava” it took just two months!
