- Yacht Rigging
Built in Spain in 1984 to an Arthur Holgate design, Adix had her first transformation back in 1991 when she underwent a transom modification and full interior strip out, with design by Dykstra Naval Architects. This remodelling programme saw her named as ‘Best Refit’ in the ShowBoats Awards that year. The three-masted, 370 tonne schooner, originally called Jessica is still one of the largest sailing yachts built since the 1930s.
Last year Adix underwent a new performance upgrade. The Adix’s old rigs weighed in at a whopping 15 tons. Her new masts and ECsix rigging, slotted in at the Pendennis yard last year, weighing just 9.5 tons, that’s saving 36% of the rig weight. She also got a new carbon bowsprit, replacing the old steel one.
