About this Cantiere Di Donna Gaeta, Italy Classic Gaff Schooner

English

O’REMINGTON is a legendary wooden gaff schooner. Initially, she was named Maria Del Mar and used as a wine carrier. She then was acquired by Lord Remington, the young inheritor of the US family Remington, well known for their guns and type writing machines.

The Schooner O’REMINGTON was transformed into a real luxury yacht and found itself in the heart of major artistic and cinematographic events from 1958.

From the Cannes Film Festival to the International Film Festival, the schooner has been around for decades and shared the successes of many artists of the French New Wave and the Italian aristocracy, including Federico Fellini, Luchino Visconti, Marcello Mastroianni, Anita Ekberg, or even Maria Callas. The schooner became the lucky charm of Italian cinema and nicknamed the Divina.

On the death of her benefactor, the Schooner O' Remington was cherished by Maria Callas and Aristotle Onassis, a rich Greek shipowner.

From 1975 this beautiful unit sailed in luxury charter on the African coasts and in the Red Sea.

Then, acquired in 1997 by stylist Roberta FERRETI, "DI-DONNA" subsequently underwent several "refits" and improvements in 2004 and 2007 with in particular the repair of the bridge and Burmese teak superstructures, while remaining faithful to the original design.

Forgotten and abandoned at the port of Genoa, it was acquired by Didier Cloarec in 2017. Passionate about old rigs, he had the idea of reviving this majestic ship back to her former glory.

Her history is definitely linked to the city of Cannes since the famous film director Frederico Fellini redesigned her interiors. O’REMINGTON sports the golden palms of the Cannes Film Festival at her bow.

The last reconditioning from 2017 to 2021 was carried out under the control of the French surveyor Patrick Mage. She is now a class yacht of French heritage interest with a berth in Cannes at a reduced cost. She has great potential for commercial activities in luxury charter or events.
