Having begun her career as an International 23-metre Class, Candida was converted to a J Class in the 1930s. Her name was changed to Norlanda in 1938 and she was converted to a ketch.
After the second world war, she was still in good shape. However, she didn’t get a new lease of life until 1989 when publisher Attilio Monti, who’d owned her since 1956, treated her to a major restoration at the Beconcini yard in La Spezia. This work was carried out after her original designs had been located and included partial replacement of her planking and structure as well as the rebuilding of her 48-metre Douglas fir mast. Candida then began attending the classic rallies. She can hit speeds of up to 14 knots when free-reaching. After Monti’s death, she was sold to entrepreneurs Andrea and Diego Della Valle.
Candida's interior configuration has been designed to comfortably accommodate up to 4 guests overnight in 2 cabins. She is also capable of carrying up to 6 crew onboard to ensure a relaxed luxury yacht experience.
Candida features a displacement mahogany hull and wood superstructure, with teak decks. She was built to Lloyds Register classification society rules.
Powered by 1 Caterpillar (MB846A) 322hp diesel engines and propelled by her single screw propeller sailing yacht Candida is capable of a top speed of 11 knots, and comfortably cruises at 10 knots when powered by her engine. With her 2,998 litres fuel tanks she has a maximum range of 850 nautical miles at 8 knots. Her water tanks store around 3,997 litres of fresh water.
