Formerly owned by actor Errol Flynn as ‘Sirocco’, this lovely classic wooden sailboat designed by John G. Alden and built in 1938 hosted many famous names in the heyday of Hollywood, and more recently has been the flagship of the fashion clothing company ‘Blanc Bleu’.

Flynn and his buddies indulged in so many antics that they earned the reputation of being the most notorious, hard-drinking “hell-raisers” on the island. Nearly every weekend the men would race their yachts to Catalina – Flynn on his Sirocco, Weissmuller on his Allure, and Bogart aboard his Santana. All three would bet on the outcome.
