1947 Dragon –Elska

This 1947 International Dragon has given her owner much pleasure and success in Nantucket (including an Opera House win), but with the first two pictures illustrating some issues he wisely decided it was time for some serious repair and restoration of this beautiful yacht. Please view the photos and captions below telling the story. All hull and deck carpentry by Dan De Leiris, Shipwright.

“I have had ELSKA for 19 years. She has never been better treated than by LMI. Joe Loughborough and his team are everything an owner dreams of in a boatyard: deeply expert, creative problem-resolvers, honest, on time and on budget, and communicative.” Marc Feigen, Owner, Elska, 1947 Dragon, 2008 Opera House Cup Winner
