We don't want to pick favorites but who can resist the beautiful lines of this classic yacht? Richard Herbert's S&S Bermudian Yawl REVONOC will certainly be turning heads on the starting line next June. ⠀

This was the first offshore yacht owned by esteemed sailor and former CCA Commodore Harvey Conover (Revenoc spelled backwards) who was disappeared in the Bermuda Triangle during a storm onboard Revonoc II in 1959.⠀
