1989 Macarrini 1989
The family that conceived the idea to build a “yacht with character” went to great extremes to achieve their goals. The best wood could only be gotten in Paraguay so they bought a substantial piece of that country. They had a whole saw mill disassembled and put on barges. Log loaders and trucks were added to the fleet to be tugged 1500 miles up the Uruguay River. Mr. W had a landing spot for his helicopter cleared so he could personally choose every tree that would go into the making of the AVANY so that it would be worthy of carrying his beloved wife’s name (and her face on the figurehead). The ipe’ logs were milled to manageable dimensions (1 ½ times the weight of oak) along with the finest mahogany, then it was transported back down to the ocean and up the coast to the best wooden ship builder in a land of wooden ship builders. Estaliero Maccarini was chosen to build the largest vessel of his career. His sons (the 5th generation of Maccarini’s to build wooden vessels) would work with him and his whole work force to complete the vessel in 3 years. Engineers designed the transom to open into a large “hangar” to house a pontoon copter and other essential items for their comfort and enjoyment. This makes a tremendous dive platform and dingy dock while at anchor and armor plates the ship’s stern for whatever the seas can throw at it underway. Dozens of molds were made for casting the large arched windows, deck hardware, anchor windlasses, hausepipes, and even door hinges out of silicon (navy) bronze, everything bearing the name Avany. “They broke the mold when they made her” was never truer.
