More on Design 2254 - Pirana


Back in June we posted an article about Pirana, a 46' sloop built by Palmer Johnson. The current owner was kind enough to send us these current images along with the following explanation:

The yacht was placed in storage in 1995, and did not emerge until our purchase in October 2009. The exterior was essentially original, and the interior was in very bad shape owing to several gallons of diesel left in the bilge for all those years. We replaced all interior systems, refinished the hull and deck, and installed a new carbon rig. Our intent is to configure the boat as a manageable day-sailer; racing is not a priority. It's been very challenging but rewarding. We expect to complete the project by Spring 2012.

She's a beauty. Thanks for sending these.
