The Legend

Kings’ Legend is a Swan 65 sloop-rigged, with only one mast. There is no other yacht like her. Sixty-five feet – almost twenty metres long. A yacht that can still challenge her competitors on an upwind course but also offers comfort and luxury. Imagine lounging on her teak deck at anchor in a beautiful bay, watching the sun set on the horizon.

The teak wood interior gives an authentic intimacy and atmosphere. There are four cabins with single berths or double beds. You can download the specification flyer with all further details on sails, interior layout and more.

The History

Kings’ Legend is a yacht with a rich history. She became second in the Whitbread round the World Race in 1977 – 1978.  She has known many owners, all with varying backgrounds, capturing your wildest imagination.

In 1999 Gijs van Liebergen found her in decay. She had done her job and had been left behind. It was love at first sight. With passion he gave her a second life and has kept her in shape ever since.

In harbours worldwide, she is always recognized by ‘aficionados’ – lovers of sailing. She has sailed round the world numerous times and taken part in various races, such as Les Voiles de St Tropez and the Sydney to Hobart Race.

About us

    The corridor

    From our onboard Reporter Renske. In Dutch below the English translation. Before we entered the corridor we made fun about the piracy attacks. How we would chase the pirates away with ABBA songs or how we would make guns out of paper. Getting closer to the entrance the tension rose and gradually we took a more […]

    The Arabian sea

    From our on board reporter Renske. Her Dutch words underneath. English summary: Crossing the thousand miles of Arabic Sea we started with little wind. Which worried us as we need to keep the fuel we have for the Gulf of Aden. That part of our trip is the most dangerous, between Yemen, Somalia and all these […]
