M/V BRASIL: GEERD HENDEL 61
My Yacht, BRASIL, was built in 1979 from the world-renowned designer, Geerd Hendel. Mr. Hendel served for many years as the draftsman for Star Burgess who designed and built many of the most famous J-boats during the 1930's, '40's and '50's. Mr. Hendel most well known for his design of the famous yacht "Pearl Necklace" which has many design similarities with BRASIL. Pearl Necklace appeared in several movies. BRASIL was purchased in October 2012 from a member of the DuPont family on the eastern shore of Maryland. The yacht was originally named "AWEIGH" and was a medium blue exterior. The boat was in need of significant restoration which was performed from October-November 2012. Once refitted, the yacht was piloted by owner and captain, Neil Malik, to Providence, RI where she is proudly moored today.
