Gloria comes back to the market in the best condition of her life. In the last five years she has benefitted from the generosity of her very famous owner, she now has new decks, sails, rigging and a host of other improvements and upgrades. Ready to go anywhere in the greatest comfort and style, Gloria must be inspected to appreciate all she has to offer her next owner.
Designed by Pieter Beeldsnijder, hull built by Jongert, with the interior finished by Lowland, GLORIA enjoys an impeccable pedigree, which is enhanced by the original owner’s request that she should be a modern incarnation of the famous 1936 A. Mylne designed schooner, Panda.
GLORIA is a staysail schooner with in mast and roller furling on all working sails, and power self-tailing winches for all sheets. This versatile rig allows efficient sail handling with a small crew, providing powerful and exhilarating performance in any wind conditions.
GLORIA is built in steel with mahogany clad aluminum superstructures, and aluminum masts and booms. Her interior furnishings and joiner work are rendered in the highest quality mahogany, and features intricate moldings, leaded glass doors, handsome cabinetry, and flawless finishes.
GLORIA has luxurious accommodations for eight owners and guests in four ensuite staterooms, and for up to five crew in three cabins.
GLORIA has enjoyed well known and generous owners during her life. Her recent refit works include new decks (2012), new paint (2014) and all new standing rigging (2012).
A few steps down from the cockpit, the comfortable deckhouse is the crossroads of the yacht. A staircase in the aft port corner leads to a small lobby outside the owner’s stateroom, off which is a convenient day head with shower, which also serves as a second bathroom for the owner’s stateroom. Centrally, forward, a staircase leads down to the main saloon and guest accommodations. In the deckhouse a settee to port faces a breakfast table; the captain’s navigation center is forward to starboard, aft of which is the main electrical distribution panel. Large windows surround this deckhouse providing panoramic views.
The main saloon comprises three main parts, making an inverted T. Forming the cross beam of the T are sitting conversational areas to port and starboard, while the “leg” is the dining saloon forward.
The area to starboard has a large and comfortable L-shaped settee facing aft to a built in flat panel television below a leaded glass crystal display cabinet. A charming working fireplace is outboard with a white marble hearth. Also a Raritan icemaker is situated within one cupboard.
Opposite to port is a very convivial conversational area with a C-shaped settee facing a writing / music desk. There is exceptional headroom, with two vaulted skylights, several portholes, and the clever use of mirrors to enhance the feeling of space.
The oval dining table, with inlaid marquetry compass rose and eight dining chairs, is beneath the forward skylight. The galley is outboard through a sliding door to port, and is described in greater detail below.

The master stateroom is aft of the deckhouse down a short curving staircase. This impressive room occupies the full beam of the yacht. A king sized double berth is against the aft bulkhead, flanked by symmetrical L-shaped settees. Four portholes are in the hull sides, and there are two overhead hatches (one being an escape hatch). The very generous bathroom is forward to port with whirlpool tub, marble, mahogany and gold accents.
Forward and down from the deckhouse, a generous lobby surrounds the base of the main mast. Either side of this are two almost mirror image guest staterooms one with a queen sized berth the other features twin single berths that can push together to make a king size double berth. These charming rooms are finished in mahogany with off white panels. There are two portholes and a deck hatch in each stateroom. Both cabins have marble and mahogany ensuite bathrooms.
This twin bunk stateroom is to starboard of the dining saloon, and has an ensuite head and shower forward in marble and mahogany.

GLORIA has a gently sweeping sheerline, with a spoon bow and long overhanging stern. She is a “full keel” yacht with the rudder on the tailing edge. The hull is rendered in steel, and all superstructures are mahogany clad aluminum. All weather decks are sheathed in 5/8” seasoned teak. Replaced by Pendennis 2012 hull last painted Awlgrip 2014.
Beginning at the bow:
The bowsprit carries two hydraulic Reckmann furlers for the Yankee #1 and Yankee #2. There are proper handholds on the sprit and netting between the whisker stays. The staysail tack is on the stem, and it is also furled by a Reckmann unit. This staysail is sheeted to a boom whose gooseneck is on a stand just forward of the twin gypsy windlass.
The windlass handles the Danforth anchors which are held on stainless steel plates on either side of the bow, and a sail locker accommodates the ropes and fenders
Aft of the windlass a doghouse, flanked by highly polished Dorade vents, provides access to the crew quarters.
Four Lewmar winches flank the base of the foremast. Aft of this, the middle deck features the skylights above the main and dining saloons. The yacht’s tenders are carried either side of these skylights. They are recovered and launched by traditional half bow davits with falls.
Aft of the main mast, the deckhouse structure is continued aft into the cockpit surround. This cockpit has seating around an expandable mahogany table and, with the addition of two director’s chairs, comfortable dining alfresco for eight.
Aft of this the helm with binnacle is the proper John Hastie ship’s wheel and all hydraulic controls. A stainless steel boom crutch with helm seat divides the helmsman from the winch pit. Surrounded by eight new (2013) self-tailing Lewmar winches, most sailing functions are handled here.
Aft of the mainsheet traveler, on the fantail of the yacht, four sunbathing pads provide a very inviting spot to relax. Beneath this area is a large lazarette able to swallow all fenders, lines, and gear.
