NOVA presents in impressive structural and cosmetic condition already stored inside and ready for sailing this season or next - this is a turnkey option and perhaps the ideal size for an easily sailed family classic yacht with a wonderful pedigree. NOVA is not hard to sail single handed for all those times when you want to be at one with your boat! Beautiful; fast and ready to go.

Historical Note


NOVA was built by famed San Diego sailor and a Lipton Challenge cup contender Gerald Driscoll as his personal yacht in the 1960s. He sailed out of the San Diego yacht club community to race against such characters as Lowell North (North sails), Skip Caulking, (designer of the 1959 Honolulu race winner LEGEND, also built by Driscoll Boat Works) and Paul Kettenburg’s (K-40 TOMBOY II. Kettenburg’s yard was adjacent to Driscoll's yard in Shelter Island, San Diego).

While not a lot of historical information is available on NOVA, she did have a near identical sister vessel named GAMIN commissioned by Richard Lerner of Newport Beach in 1960.

"Sea and Pacific Motorboat Magazine" wrote in September 1962 “..........In brief NOVA and GAMIN
are 38 ft 11inches overall with a beam of 10 ft and a sail area of 678 ft². The design is by Sparkman
and Stephens. The interiors are beautifully finished.”

GAMIN was lost on a reef near Cape San Lazzaro, Mexico during the 1961 Los Angeles to Mazatlan, Mexico race.
