History Notes


AITOR is an iconic yacht in the "Royal Club Nautico" Barcelona. In 1962 she was commissioned by Spanish steel magnate Federico Luzuriaga. Built at Astilleros Viudes in Barcelona she is of cold moulded wood timber construction. The ribs were rolled in situ and taken from the mould for fitting and cleaning before final fixing. More recently the yacht has been restored taking fully into account the record of communication between Jack Laurent Giles and her first owner and the building boat yard reports at that time so every aspect was considered in proper detail.
