“Sogno II“ is a custom built Ted Brewer designed, offshore sailing yacht built by Mao-Tai and Pan Oceanic Marine in Taiwan in 1979.
Built in Fiberglas and with flush deck and raised deckhouse, the boat features a distinctive canoe stern which provides safety and comfort especially in following seas. The reputation of this proven blue water yacht is legendary. “Sogno II” is in sail-ready condition, ready for her next adventure.
Pan Oceanic Marine had its beginnings in 1979, when Reese Palley asked naval architect Ted Brewer to design a flush-deck pilothouse cutter. That is just what Ted did, naming the design the Oceanic 46. With the design in hand, Reese's next challenge was getting it built. He hired Robert Pancoe to get it done in Taiwan. Mr. Pancoe built Reese his boat, and decided that other sailors might like one too.
Bob Pancoe took part of his last name into Oceanic, and Pan Oceanic Marine was born. Pancoe then asked Ted Brewer for a 43-foot design, and then, a 38-foot version of the Oceanic. Ted complied. He even did an initial drawing for a 55-footer, but says he never completed the design.
Under the name of “Unlikely VII”, this vessel, personally owned by Reese Palley and Hull #1 of the line, made history as the first private sailing yacht ever into Communist China in 1982; first into the Black Sea port of Odessa in 1989; and first into Romania in 1990. Lovingly updated with computerized electronics and upgraded interior, she has had many adventures over many miles with her current owner, as well, and is now ready for the next chapter of her seaworthy life.
