THE EL VIENTO STORY
The timeless 'El Viento' was built in 1956. Fully restored, she will hit the market in early 2023.
El Viento translates loosely to 'the wind,' which is fitting, given her smooth sailing and sleek body. She is a historical Newporter 40, Hull No. 2, (Hull No.12 is owned by actor Rock Hudson!), and she was built in 1956 in Newport Beach, California.
Purchased and lovingly restored by Jim Jacobson, she will hit the market in early 2023.
