SIESTA is one of Norway’s most beautiful, iconic classic fiberglass boats with a mahogany superstructure. She was built in Finland in 1965 for shipowner Jan Erik Dyvi. The boat was designed by Olin Stephens at Sparkman & Stephens.
Sparkman & Stephens stood out with all their characteristics and building style. This helped to make the yard famous internationally during the 40s and 50s.
RORC: She is designed and adapted to the British RORC rating rules.

Siesta is a beautiful sea cruiser, with steering wheel, teak deck and beautiful white painted Selden rig (sloop) with double win. A very successful design and has construction number # 1767. The well-known sister boat “Norseman”, was an extremely successful regatta boat that has the most victories in the 1960s and 70s. To be exact, she has won 40 awards out of 50 in the IOR race.

In 2017, current owner Erling Storm & his wife Bente bought beautiful Siesta after being owners of Eileen II for 27 years.

The most beautiful boat they found was the Siesta. They sailed in the summer of 2017, and in 2018 they decided to rehabilitate her at Vindø Marin on Orust.
There, Siesta received a really extensive restoration in the winter of 2018-19.

Over 80 points have been improved on the boat –

New teak deck, new bathing ladder for comfortable swimming from the stern, bow thruster, electric winch on the cabin roof for fall and demolition, new sails, deck washer system, solar cell charging and new main electrical system, new LifePod 4 batteries, new instruments and chart plotter, new staircase inside, nickel-plated salon lamp, bell and barometer, new sink and fittings in the toilet room, new drawers under the bunks, new mattress in the forehead with specially sewn sheets, all of the exterior wood is painted with Extrem-Coat which can keep the boat easy to maintain for many years.

She has a warm and safe cockpit with 6 seats and with its own steering well. With a new Raymarine chartplotter mounted on a pedestal, new instrumentation mounted under the aisle placed between the steering wheel and the cockpit and an electric winch on the roof of the cabin, sailing is like a dream. She is easy to sail alone. Storage space in the outside living room aft.

On the bb side below deck you will find a smart and cozy galley with 2 x gas burner and stove with electric ignition. Easy washing with v & k pressurized water. Plenty of closet space over a bench in white Corian for cooking. Corian is an exclusive, durable and solid interior material, and has a pore-free and durable surface that is easy to maintain. It looks like new for a long time. Any damage that occurs can usually be easily repaired.
Two stingrays aft with entrance on bbs with cupboards and living room under the berth. On the sb page you will find the navigation table with technical panel. Smart drawers underneath.
