Bagabonda SV is a 46-foot sailing vessel. This sloop version (1 mast) of the Amel Santorin was designed by Henri Amel and Architect Jacques Carteau. Chantiers Amel in La Rochelle built about 150 of these between 1989 and 1997.

Koen Blanquart, who’s been documenting his travel on Boarding Today for over a decade, now prepares the Bagabonda to take her around the world.
