The following article by Linda and Steve Dashew appeared in Voyages, Chronicles of the Cruising Club of America, and puts the FPB 78 into a historical context. We thought you might enjoy giving it a read.
Berthon, Dashew Offshore’s worldwide marketing agents, have had the privilege to be involved with the iconic FPB brand, and continue to work closely with both Linda and Steve to offer the definitive brokerage service for these yachts; they having recently decided to stop building so they could go back to sea.
