The Saga 409 will now be built by Bruckmann Yachts.
J.J. Taylor & Sons Ltd., owner of the SAGA brand and Bruckmann Yachts, have entered into a strategic alliance to have the SAGA line of ocean cruising sailboats built by Bruckmann at their yard in Mississauga Ontario.
The SAGA line consists of the Bob Perry designed 35, 43 and 48 and the Tony Castro designed 409. SAGA will offer the line on a semi-custom build-to-order basis to join the nearly 100 Saga vessels currently doing service around the globe.
Perry says: “Bruckmann is a near legendary yard and these designs are near and dear to me. I am very happy to hear that SAGA will be working with Mark Bruckmann to continue the legacy of these break-through sailboats.”
The Bruckmann family has been building sail and motor yachts for over 40 years. Mark Bruckmann says: “The SAGA designs are proven blue water performers that will compliment our existing offerings from designers Mark Ellis and Doug Zurn. We look forward to carrying forward our traditions of quality in building SAGA Yachts.”
