Most yachts are available for charter during the various races and regattas as solely spectator boats (what better way to view the race than from a beautiful yacht while being pampered with fine food and spirits?) as the owners do not want the wear and tear that racing demands on their yacht.

That said, Volterra will consider a racing charter for the Voiles de St. Barths, and the Antigua Classic Yacht Regatta... inquire !

VOLTERRA, an 80-foot classic Palmer Johnson sloop, was designed to circumnavigate the world safely in comfort and style. While she has indeed traced her stern wake around the globe, she has also distinguished herself on the race course in the Mediterranean, the Caribbean, and the Atlantic; Volterra finished first in the 1997 Transatlantic Challenge Race.

Designed by German Frers and John Alden, she is endowed with fast, classically  elegant lines, built by Palmer Johnson and solid cherry wood interior by John Munford.  She's a beauty!

Twin Guest Cabin

Volterra has a crew of three and accommodates up to six guests in three cabins. There are port and starboard guest cabins, each with two single beds and adjoining bathrooms with showers. Two additional bunks are provided in the main salon, enclosed by a privacy curtain. The owners cabin located midships offers two beds, one extends to a full queen sized bed. The owner's cabin also offers a comfortable settee with a fold down work desk and a well-appointed bathroom with shower stall.

Her large cockpit offers ample elbow room to an active racing crew as well as comfortable accommodations to owner and guests for a romantic dinner in the moonlight.
