“Commissioned by a flamboyant baroness as a gift to her husband, she was named Sumurun for an exotic harem girl, designed and built by a legendary Scottish yard, and hailed as one of the swiftest and most beautiful yachts afloat. Sumurun’s story is filled with vivid personalities, a multitude of racing victories, and a serene elegance. Sumurun has had famous guests such as Mick Jagger and John Kerry. After two years of painstaking restoration work, Sumurun returned to the Mediterranean in 2019, winning Les Voiles De Saint-Tropez.”
