The Lady of the Sea "Cynara"

Lady of the Sea "Sinara"

The rare vintage yacht "Cinara" built in England in 1927.It is called "the lady of the sea" because of its beautiful sailing appearance, and it does not capture the hearts of people.In order to carefully polish and leave the "good old Shinara", which can be said to be a treasure that the world has entrusted to us, to the next generation, we launched the restore (full-scale restoration) project in 2015.Then, in 90, when Sinara turned 2017, she started the restoration work by elevating it from the sea, and this time it was completed.
The goal of this restoration project was to preserve the original materials as much as possible and to pass on the technology to Japan, which has no restoration technology.We invited 10 excellent shipbuilders from 50 countries around the world as the Riviera family, and the bartnership, which included Japanese craftsmen, had a wonderful effect beyond the transfer of technology.
Based on the philosophy of "polishing good old things and leaving them for the next generation" of the "Riviera Future Creation Project" that aims for a sustainable society committed to SDGs, 100% of the teak wood at the time of construction 92 years ago was left, and it was born 100 years ago. It brought more than 100 years of life to the Shinara.

At "Classic Boat Award 2021"
We received the award for the sailing ship Restoration of the Year (over 40ft).

The historic wooden sailing vessel "Cinara" was announced at the Digital Ceremony held on April 2021 (UK time) at the "Classic Boat Awards 15" sponsored by the British "Classic Boat".This is an "award sent in honor of the passion and dedication of everyone involved in classic yachts."It was the first feat in Asia to be nominated alongside the famous boats, and it was said that it would be difficult to win the award because Shinara, which had been in Japan for nearly half a century, had a distant memory in Europe and the United States. I was able to receive such a prestigious award.

We would like to express our sincere gratitude to everyone who cast a passionate vote for Cinara.
