Built from teak and pitch pine planking on an oak frame, Javelin is one of the 160 designs penned by Arthur Edward Payne. She changed hands several times between her launch and 1950 before being registered to the Reale Club Nautico in Barcelona. In 2002, she was found abandoned in the port of Soto Grande near Gibraltar under the name of Javelin of Northam. Purchased by Turin businessman Daniele Canelli, Javelin was refit by master ship’s carpenter Fabian Lomez near Malaga, and then restored at the Alto Adriatico yard in Monfalcone to plans by the Studio Faggioni of La Spezia. In 2007, she won the best restoration prize at the Barcolana Classic in Trieste. In 2009, she won the Yacht Club de Monaco’s Le Belle Class Trophy and in the same year and in 2010, participated in all of the Tyrrhenian rallies.
