Oceana is a boat with an amazing provenance and history:
She was built in Holland in 1938, That fact in and of itself is pretty amazing. She was one of the last private vessels to be produced by Dutch for the next decade, certainly one of the last steel boats of the era.
She was constructed of the same steel that was being used to build the infamous U-Boats in the build-up to the war. And Hitler annexed Holland in May of 1940, just eight months after the outbreak of the war.
Mr. Williams later went on to star in “Lost in Space.” Sailing was a passion of Mr. Williams, and indeed, Oceana is mentioned in several bios about him including IMDB and Wikipedia.
Guy Williams Jr. Fondly remembers sailing on Oceana with more than a few celebrities, as well as Uncle Walt and his Brother Roy (Disney). If there’s Royalty in Sailing circles those are the Crown Princes.
The previous owner circumnavigated her around the globe, twice.
It’s truly Awe inspiring to think of the history this vessel has been a part of and the wonders she’s already seen, if I can add a tiny bit to that tradition I will consider myself privileged indeed.
