The little story
Øya was built in 1975 at the L. Landy site in Vitry-le-Francois. It is one of the three “Goelands” of the architect Elie Poinsot having been carried out.
Although built in 1975, Øya, then called Crocus, made her first sailings in 1992. Her second owner renamed her Oya in 2011, and made a tour of the North Atlantic. I acquired the yacht in October 2019, renamed her in turn Øya.
Initially, Øya’s rigging was in sloop, it was modified by the addition of a bow nose at the front and an extension of the mast in cutter.
