Biography


Antwerp Flyer is an alumimium, seagoing sailing yacht, designed by Ed Dubois (UK), which was launched in 1991. The hull was constructed by Chantiers Navals de Biot (France) and the ship was finished in Belgium.

The ship was designed to sail in Northern Seas and has already made trips to Spitsbergen in the Arctic. Antwerp Flyer sails beautifully close to the wind, is fast and is very seaworthy, even in rough circumstances.
