Saga signs sailboat deal with builder


J.J. Taylor & Sons Ltd., owner of the Saga brand, and Bruckmann Yachts, entered into a strategic alliance to have the Saga line of ocean-cruising sailboats built by Bruckmann at its 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 semicustom build-to-order basis.

"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 breakthrough sailboats," Perry said in a statement.
